Resume Book Drive – Are you in the Book?

The Center for Career Development will be compiling Resume Books for employers who will be attending the Engineering Fair in March. These Resume Books will allow employers to view student information and even reach out to students before the fair begins! Employers will be able to request Resume Books for specific majors as well as a Diversity Resume Book.

To get your resume included, students need to have a critiqued resume uploaded on Handshake, and their profile MUST be marked Public to Employers. The deadline to be included is Friday, Feb. 19.

The Engineering Career Fair will be held virtually on Handshake on Wednesday, Mar. 3.
