Resume Review Day - Friday, February 4, 2022 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM
Resume Review Day gives students an opportunity to get their resume reviewed by industry leaders before attending the Career Fair. It's a great way to begin preparing and allows students to meet employers in advance. Returning Spring 2022, students attending Resume Review Day will have the opportunity to also attend a preemptive student-led resume workshop to further develop and refine their resumes. It is strongly recommended that all underclassmen register to attend both sessions.
This is an incredible opportunity with limited capacity, so students are encouraged to sign-up beginning in January 2022.
Employers interested in participating/reviewing as a part of the Technical Resume Review Day are invited to sign up beginning in January 2022.
In an effort to keep both students and employers safe, the Spring 2022 Resume Review Day will take place virtually.
