Career Guides


An important aspect of your career development is learning how to tell your story effectively. During various times of your academic and professional career, you will need to present yourself to potential members of your career network, prospective employers, undergraduate, graduate and/or professional school admissions committees, and several others. The most common ways are through your resume/CV, cover letter, networking efforts, and various types of interviews.

The Career Services Center has developed the following career guides to help you craft your story.  Give yourself plenty of time to create and refine your story.  It is important to make a positive impression on those who might receive your resume/CV and cover letter and meet with you.
