Advise your student to write a resume

Advise your student to write a resume

Writing a resume can be a “reality test” and can help a student identify weak areas that require improvement. Suggest your student get sample resumes from the career center, from books at the public library, or online.

You can review resume drafts for grammar, spelling, and content, but recommend that the final product be critiqued by a career center professional.

Next: Challenge your student to become “occupationally Iiterate”
