Q – Is there a resume template I should use or where do I start?

A – Your resume is a professional reflection of you so use a format that represents you and your experience well verses using a specific template. There are templates available through Microsoft Word and online. Remember, if you use a template, don’t limit yourself to using only the headings that auto-populate. Don’t exclude information because it doesn’t fall in place within the template headings. Create your own style of resume…Career Services can help!

Q – I don't have EXPERIENCE...how will I ever get a job in my field?

A – In addition to taking advantage of internships and co-ops available, developing a resume which highlights your achievements and transferrable skills will help you get noticed! Career Services can help!
