Resumes and Interviews

A résumé is a concise way to introduce yourself to a potential employer and an interview is your chance to show an employer that you will be a good fit for the position and the company.  Both are job search essentials.  Below are tools which will help you create or refine your résumé and help you put your best foot forward in an interview.  

You may also drop by the Career Center and get assistance on a drop in basis. Workshops on both topics are offered periodically each semester. Check the CC Events Calendar for a schedule.
