Resume Review Help

The Office of Career and Professional Development is committed to help WTAMU students and alumni develop dynamic job search documents such as resumes and cover letters. It is always a good idea to have another set of eyes read through your application materials before you hit send. Oftentimes it is hard to find our own errors. Because of this, we offer several options for you to have your resume and other job search documents reviewed by our staff. 

If you haven't been through one of our resume development workshops, you'll want to start there! The workshop is offered online, via video, and through our virtual webinar series.

By appointment

All appointments at the present time are on Zoom. 

Schedule an appointment in Handshake for a review either in-person, via telephone, or Zoom video conference. To schedule, log in to Handshake, click on Career Center from the top menu bar and then Appointments to choose an available slot. Check out this short video tutorial

VMock - AI resume reviews

WTAMU has partnered with VMock to offer our students 24/7 online access to AI-based resume feedback. This system analyzes all aspects of your resume, benchmarks it against 100+ critical parameters, and leverages data-science, machine learning, and natural language processing to provide instant, targeted, personalized guidance to improve your resume. VMock is designed to work with resumes from many different fields across various industries.

Start by clicking the link below to create your account using your WTAMU single sign on credentials, then upload your resume. Now VMock will:

  • Provide you with general resume guidelines to ensure that you do not miss any details and to help you establish a great first impression.
  • Assess how well you have marketed your core competencies to showcase needed skill sets in your academic, qualifications, experience, achievements, etc.
  • Detail out line-by-line suggestions to aid you in improving your resume content based on your college major and classification.
  • Give you an aggregate resume score (while it's not about the score, know that 75% is very good!) to assess the strength of your resume benchmarked against other WTAMU students and alumni.

You'll get an overall score as well as individual scores and feedback in three critical areas: Resume Impact | Presentation | Career Competencies.

Now, read through feedback and make relevant changes to your resume. Next re-upload it to see your increased score and associated improvements then schedule an appointment with one of our staff members for a one-on-one review.

Special dates!
Walk in Wednesdays

Check Handshake for periodic 'walk-in' dates for resume reviews and quick career questions. 

We will not offer these each week as we have in the past, but will have a few dates available throughout the semester where our staff will be available for 15-minute walk-in resume reviews via Zoom. Because these are not appointments, note that you may have to wait to see us. If you require longer than 15 minutes with a Career and Professional Development staff member, please schedule an appointment in Handshake.

Since this is a 15-minute session, we will need you to upload your resume to Handshake or email it to us prior to beginning the review.

Walk-in Wednesday

Due to limited time and staffing, often we are not able to do a detailed resume review until you have been through our resume development workshop. The workshop is offered online, via video, and through our virtual webinar series. Find more information here. We encourage you to take time and attend a workshop or do the online version prior to meeting with us. Note that it is highly possible that the reviewer will recommend you attend a workshop if they determine that your resume needs a lot of work.
