For Students
Getting Started
Job Search

A resume is a summary of your education, experiences, skills, and qualifications. A strong resume successfully demonstrates the strength of your candidacy for a particular position.

Engineering Career Development encourages students to upload a new resume to McCormickConnect each quarter to ensure employers receive the most up to date information.

Developing Your Resume

Undergraduate students will develop their resume through the CRDV301: Introduction to Career Development course.

Graduate students will have the opportunity to review resume skills through the MS Career Bootcamp or PhD Summer Seminar Series.

Students are welcome to make a resume review appointment at any time throughout the year.
