12:00-2:00 pm and 4:00-6:00 pm
Student Success Center
Computer Lab 150

Each date above will offer day and evening workshops, with the daytime being 12:00–2:00 pm and the evening 4:00–6:00 pm. No RSVP is required. 

Your resume is a marketing tool created to market you. It may be your first contact with an employer, whether applying for an internship, co-op, or job opportunity. Resumes for leadership opportunities, graduate school, scholarships, fellowship applications, and more may also be requested.

Employers often review resumes and cover letters in 10 seconds or less. This means your resume must be well-written, concise, highly organized, and easy to read to be effective. When creating your resume, customize it for the reader; organize your accomplishments and interests to their needs. Tailoring your resume to a specific employer is a crucial component for success.

There is not one correct way to organize a resume. Design and content depend on your unique education, experiences, and skills. Therefore, having different versions of your resume depending on the job type/industry you would like to target is a good idea. In this workshop, you will learn more and build your resume with SSU Career Services. In addition, learn about our new platform, Hiration, which utilizes AI to enhance your resume!
