Read the resume writing introduction to get started writing your resume. Additional tips to consider:
A cover letter, while not always required, can make a difference—especially when applying for jobs in the newspaper or over the internet. A good letter should establish your intentions, enthusiasm, and knowledge of the company. Start with the cover letter introduction .
Now that you have a resume and/or cover letter ready, come by the career center and get it reviewed by one of our staff. You can either schedule an appointment or bring your document by the career center during drop-in hours.
We request that you bring a hard printed copy of your resume and/or cover letter with you for your appointment or drop-in session. See the appointment and drop-in informattion below:
If you need to reschedule or cancel your appointment, please notify our office 24 hours in advance. This allows our staff to offer your appointment time to another student, who is in need of our services. Failure to cancel your appointment within 24 hours, more than once, will result in losing your appointment privileges for the semester; however, you may still utilize our drop-in services.
Students can call (864) 656-0440 to schedule an individual, virtual appointment with a counselor for questions or assistance. Appointments are available 10 am to 11:30 am and 1:30 pm to 4 pm Monday through Friday.
