We offer one-on-one career advising sessions to discuss your career goals and objectives and how to attain them.  Our staff is available to review and assist you with your Résumé and to help you with your career development plan in order for you to be prepared and competitive in today’s job market.

As part of our service, we review your Résumé in depth before publishing it in our database system or sending to a prospective employer for interview consideration. Our goal: to make sure you are projecting the most positive image possible as you compete with other top-ranked business school students throughout the United States.

All résumés uploaded into the Business Career Link are reviewed and critiqued in the order received by our Career Management Services staff.  This may take up to three business days or possibly longer if it is received during peak times. 

If you are planning on attending a special event like a campus interview or career fair, make sure you upload your résumé into the Business Career Link at least 1 week prior to this date and preferably earlier.

This allows for any needed revisions without missing your deadline. If you do not make the recommended Résumé corrections, it cannot be posted in the database system or sent to employers from our office.

We’re here to help:
