You may be the most qualified candidate for a position, but your current resume looks like it’s from the ice ages (aka high school). Do you relate to this scenario? The Career & Leadership Development Center can help. The Job Search Guide provides detailed resume guidance, ranging from formatting ideas to helpful hints on content to include. Once you’ve got a draft started, review through the CLDC’s Resume Checklist to make sure you’ve got all your bases covered. (HINT: This is the exact checklist CLDC staff use to approve your resume for Bobcat CareerLink access!)

Are online resources not enough? Stop by the CLDC for a 10-minute drop-in appointment Monday-Friday, 11 a.m.- 5 p.m., or email Jessie Carter to set up a 30-minute career coaching appointment.
