Resume Assistance

Appointments with counselors

Students can make an appointment with a counselor to get some help in getting started a resume. If possible, they should bring a rough draft of their resume to the appointment. This will help the counselor see where they are in the resume development process.

Counselors can help:

  • decide on a resume style that is right
  • organize information to emphasize strengths
  • develop language that will be most impressive on a resume
  • proofread the final version of the resume to make sure there are no errors
