Graduate Student Seminar- Tailoring Your Resume

It might take you 30 hours to work on your resume, but an employer will take less than 30 seconds to review it. One version of your resume isn’t enough. This seminar will provide graduate students with tips, formats, and approaches to targeting your resume to make you stand out from other applicants. It is important to understand what companies expect to see in a resume for both content as well as layout. Bring a hard copy of a resume and position description with you, so you can leave the workshop with a critiqued and tailored resume.
