rÉsumÉ drive recap

Resume Drive flyerThe Office of Career Services held its three-day Résumé Drive featuring a multitude of employers Sept. 7-9. Students were invited in on a first-come, first served process to the Office of Career Services in Murphy Hall in two three-hour increments.

During this event, students were able to have one-on-one résumé critique sessions with employers to adjust and refine their résumés before the annual Fall Career Fair.

“I heard about the event through my email and I saw some of the companies that were going to be here,” freshman computer science student Jordan Everett said. “Especially, since next week we are having the career fair, I wanted to make sure that I had my résumé reviewed so that I could be ready for next week.”

The Office of Career Services encourages students who were not able to attend the Résumé Drive event to still schedule an appointment with a career coach to review their résumés. You can schedule an appointment on Handshake or click here.
