How can I improve my résumé-writing and interviewing skills?
Statistics show that employers spend less than 10 seconds scanning a résumé, so the format and style should showcase your most important credentials at a glance.
Once you land the interview (whether face-to-face or "virtual"), making a good impression takes poise, skill, and know-how.
Let us help you put your best foot forward. Call Career Services (617.287.5519) to make an appointment with a career specialist for advice and coaching on résumé, cover letter, and interview preparation.
Also check out the Career Services Building an Effective Resume handbook for useful resume-writing tips and examples. It is available in Career Services or online.
