Marshall University Career Services will help graduating students with their resumes Tuesday and Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. during an open house at Career Services.
Jennifer Brown, program manager of Career Services, said the event is designed to help graduate students that need help with their resumes.
“We might be able to do a mock interview for them depending on how many people are here,” Brown said.
Brown said Career Services can provide students with online tools that can help their careers.
“We can also take a professional photo for them for their LinkedIn account,” Brown said.
Brown said Career Services can review resumes on a jump drive or on a student’s network folder.
Brown said students can also prepare a new resume or begin their first one if students have not done so.
“If they do not have a resume, that’s fine. They can come by and we will put one together,” Brown said.
Brown said Career Services encourages students to use JobTrax, which is a Career Services program that can help students find jobs online.
“We’re also going to have them put their resume on the website,” Brown said.
Brown said the main purpose of the open house is to help senior students equip themselves with the basic career skills before they graduate.
“It’s to get job search strategies,” Brown said. “They’re about to graduate and they are looking for full-time jobs, so that’s what we will be helping them with.”
