For some, one of the hardest parts of looking for a job or internship is pulling together a great resume. What should you include? How should it be formatted? Is it worded correctly? How long should it be? The more you work on it, the more confusing it can become.
Here’s your chance to take some of the stress off yourself! Bring your resume to the RESUME DOCTOR!! On Thursday, Nov. 18, 2010 from 1pm-4pm, staff from Career and Leadership Development will be reviewing resumes in the Andersen Library. FREE! No appointments needed!
Just bring your resume and your questions to the Resume Doctor on Thursday between 1pm-4pm. Located on the second (main) floor of Andersen Library.
The Library also has resources for job hunters. For a listing of books on writing resumes, job hunting, or interviewing, try conducting a Subject Browse in the online catalog on one of the following phrases: job hunting, employment interviewing, and/or resumes (employment). Sample titles are Résumé Magic: Trade Secrets of a Professional Résumé Writer and What Color Is Your Parachute?: A Practical Manual for Job-hunters and Career-changers. Many of the books are available electronically through netLibrary, and can be read right on your computer.
