We have been helping college students with resume writing for years. However, our first piece of advice, is always - Have you been to your college career center for help?
After years of career center operations experience, I am still always amazed how many students do not take advantage of resume writing services in college career centers.
Although not all centers have the same offerings, here are some of the FREE resume writing services available from college career centers:
- Handouts and sample college resumes appropriate for your major
- Lists of action verbs to help you get the latest industry buzz words on your resume
- Resume critiques offering feedback to enhance your resume and make it more attractive to employers
- Employer and recruiter feedback on your college resume is available through information sessions or even via email
- Online resume databases that allows you to store multiple resumes to distribute to employers who are interviewing on campus
Before considering paying professional resume writers, visit your college career center and talk to a career counselor. Many of these same career counselors work part time as professional writers for other services.
