Creating a Resume that Sells
A resume is your first introduction to a potential employer. The quality of your resume is a reflection of who you are and will usually determine whether or not you receive a call for an interview. Your resume should convince the reviewer that you meet the desired qualifications and that you have the potential to fill the position. Although there are several pre-fillable templates online, it is important to choose the format that presents your skills to the employer in the most effective manner.
Interview with Confidence
Whether you are headed for your first interview or your fifteenth, a mock interview can be a big help. Mock interviews simulate actual interviewing conditions, providing experience with the interviewing process and developing presentation skills. These sessions usually last 30-45 minutes. Benefits of participating in a mock interview are:
- Reduce interview anxiety by familiarizing yourself with the situation.
- Boost your confidence about the things you are doing well.
- Receive constructive feedback from an interviewing professional.
- Prepare for behavioral-based interview questions.
- Formulate questions you should ask the employer.
- View your recorded session for future reference.
Resume assistance and mock interviews are free of charge and available year-round for current students and alumni. To schedule your appointment, call 843-574-6119 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
