Just because you are out of sight concerning being on campus does not mean that you are out of mind! We are still here to assist our alumni as well.

Resumes and Cover Letters 

Do you feel like your resume is not sealing the deal for you? No problem! We can help you enhance your resume and cover letter. Some people make the mistake of not truly understanding the importance of a resume. It is the forerunner to your success in landing a new job – so it’s important that it’s free from grammatical errors and that it expresses who you are and what you can do! It is most beneficial to set up a one-on-one appointment – however, if you are not able to come to campus for an appointment, you may also e-mail your documents to the address below for review and we will respond to you within 24-48 hours!

Mock Interviews

We offer practice interviews for alumni as well! Your interview will be recorded so that you are able to develop a greater awareness of your non-verbal behaviors, because a lot of what you say does not come out of your mouth! Additionally, you will be asked specific questions relating to the job you are seeking so that you can be better prepared when participating in a formal interview.
