The Career Center has recently adopted a new Resume Builder feature in CareerConnection, our job search and campus recruiting software program. This feature offers resume and cover letter templates and samples. Students will be able to select layouts and customize their resume according to fields of interest. Students can personalize their resume by choosing a special font, changing margins and modifying other layout options.
While many students create resumes using Microsoft Word or a similar program, others may find it helpful to use a template or outline. I have found it helpful to use a software program such as Resume Builder to help me get started creating a layout for my resume. Once I have a start, I am able to export my completed resume and move the content around to personalize it. If you need a resume quickly these templates can get you moving! To check out this new program, visit the Career Center Web page and login to CareerConnection. The Resume Builder is under the Documents tab in the CareerConnection system.
