Attend the All Careers Fair Virtual Resume Review

Planning to attend career fairs this semester or just looking for advice on how to improve your resume? The University of Arkansas Career Development Center (UA CDC) is offering a virtual resume review event prior to the All Careers Virtual Fair this week. Career peer mentors and career counselors will be available 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 9, via Zoom. Registration is not required to attend.

A strong resume is essential in getting an employer's attention when attending a career event or applying for jobs and internships, and there are ways to help you make the most of the attention you're getting. However, knowing what to include (or not) and how best to highlight experiences on a resume can be confusing. Meeting with a peer mentor or counselor during the virtual resume review can provide you with individualized feedback and answer your specific resume questions. In addition, the UA CDC's resume website includes information, tips, resources, and resume examples to help.

Tuesday's virtual resume reviews are part of a series of UA CDC events throughout the semester. This week, the Diversity Career Connection Mixer (Feb. 9, 5-7:45 p.m.) and All Careers Virtual Fair (Feb. 10, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.) both provide a chance for students to engage directly with employers.
