Is your resume ready to send in with your applications or to post on your Handshake or LinkedIn profile? Do you have one ready for the next SSU career fair?

If not, join Career Services to create a resume that will demonstrate your education/experience and discuss specific information for certain majors to include!

Although we recommend you begin drafting your resume ahead of time, this is not required to attend. We will also discuss opportunities to improve your resume. It is essential to remember that your resume will determine if you get a job interview.

Major Exploration and Career Planning Workshops

Thursday, March 18: Drop by between 10 am-noon
Wednesday, April 14: Drop by between 10 am-noon

Deciding on a major can be one of the most difficult aspects a student faces when entering or considering higher education. Or maybe you’ve already declared a major and would like to make a change. Career Services offers many resources to help you decide whether a particular major is right for you.
