Resume Writing

The Resume Writing Workshop provides students an introduction to creating and formatting a resume.  Students attending the workshop will learn how to format a resume, organize their employment and educational experiences, and highlight their strengths and skills.  The Resume Writing Workshop is also a great resource for students looking to create a resume for a job or internship, transfer applications, or scholarships.

Students are strongly encouraged to attend a workshop before getting their resume reviewed. 

Students are encouraged to sign up for a Resume Writing Workshop workshop if they are:

  1. Creating their first resume
  2. Approaching graduation or planning to transfer to another school
  3. Completing a class assignment


The Career Advising Team strongly recommends attending a Resume Writing workshop when possible.  We have also created Resume Writing videos for students.
