Resume Workshop

As you begin the process of writing your resume or editing your existing resume, it is important to note that your resume is really a marketing piece, an advertisement, for your unique set of skills, abilities and experience. It is a tool that you use to gain an interview. Employers want to know how you will contribute to their business' success. 

You need to research and learn what employers in your field seek in a prospective employee. It's not enough that your resume provide the who/what/when/where, you must now personalize and target each resume for a particular position before you send it!

We invite you to go through this workshop from start to finish - it will take less than an hour. 

If you prefer - check out the schedule for our LIVE resume workshops in Handshake or view the resume workshop video on our YouTube channel.

After doing so, if you are a current student or alumnus of West Texas A&M University, you are invited to schedule a resume review with us in Handshake or contact our office with questions. We look forward to working with you!
