Writing a Winning Resume

A resume is your “commercial” about how your knowledge, skills and experiences can meet the needs of prospective employers. It won’t get you a job, but it can get you an interview. College students often worry that they don’t have enough experience to fill the page. Learn the strategies and writing techniques to leverage the skills and knowledge you’ve gained through classes, research projects, part-time jobs and internships that will motivate employers to interview you.
