Employer Resume Reviews

Resume Reviews are scheduled 15-minute, one-on-one appointments between employers and students to review the student’s resume and provide industry-specific advice to strengthen the student’s candidacy. Students may also want to practice their elevator pitch or ask for tips about approaching an employer at a career fair. Resume Reviews help employers engage students in a more direct and informal manner while also allowing students to refine their career goals and possibly discover new ones.
