Resumes

Resumes are living documents that will change often.  Plan on updating your resume every six months or whenever you reach a career milestone or transition.  Once you’ve developed an initial resume stating your most recent credential (MBAE), schedule an appointment in Career Services to have it reviewed.  The staff is more than happy to help discuss tips on developing and showcasing the perfect resume for you.  Questions on document length, transferrable skills, career objectives, work history, accomplishments, etc. will all be answered by the friendly staff.  Additional resources, readings, samples, and books are also available at your convenience.
