It is that time of year when most of the graduating class becomes – what we usually call in career centers – RESUMANIACs. Career offices get busier as a steady stream of graduates drift into career centers for resume critiques and career advice as job search fears and anxiety set in as grads wonder about life after graduation.
For the second year in a row, The HBCU Career Center is offering an option for those who don’t make it to the career center on campus. We are doing free resume reviews for anyone graduating in 2019 or anyone applying for internships. We will do free resume reviews as long as the resume is posted on TheHBCUCareerCenter.com by May 31, 2019.
What we will look at in a free resume review?
-Check your resume against the 50-Resume-Writing-Tips that Work checklist.
-Verify your contact details.
-Review your social media footprint.
-Offer insight on how to share your industry knowledge.
Essentially, we will be looking at your resume the same way a HR Manager or Recruiter will be looking at your resume. The difference is, instead of putting it at the bottom of the pile, we will give you real information, tips and advice to improve your document.
Last year as we got closer to graduation, we had so many resumes to critique, graduates were waiting for up to a week to get their resume review completed. Please don’t wait.
Do it early!
