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. Take a look at the resume document links below to help you get started.

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. The 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.

Our Interview Guide can provide some additional tips to prepare you.

Resume assistance and mock interviews are free of charge and available year-round for current students and alumni. To schedule an appointment please use Navigate or email StuEmploy@tridenttech.edu.
