Career Documents Review
When applying for a job, internship, or graduate program, your résumé, cover letter, or personal statement are often the first introduction to who you are and all you bring —so it must be polished to perfection.
Our Career Counselors offer both workshops and individual review opportunities for these important documents. Resume and cover letter writing workshops are available at various times through fall and spring semesters. Individual review of any application document(s) by a Career Counselor can be requested by filling out this form and emailing the documents to our department.

Our staff helps students choose their academic majors by helping them assess their interests, skills, values, gifts and personality preferences.
