SNHU’s Career Development Center (CDC) organized the Resume Critique Night on Wednesday, February 8 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on the first floor of the Gustafson Center.
Approximately 20 professionals including marketing managers and recruiters from different companies in the New England area were invited to help undergraduate students from all majors.
Many students attended the event to have their resumes critiqued in their desired field or industry during a one-on-one 10-minute session with a professional.
Preparing a resume can be difficult and students without experience may be unconfident about their first attempt.
With resume critique sessions, students can get their resumes reviewed within a few hours with help from counsellors and industry professionals, so that they are fully prepared and confident about the resumes they are going to present.
“I am working for the SNHU library information desk right now, but I also like to take this chance to seek for some other work,” said Caryssa Propfe, a junior majoring in early childhood education.
Propfe came to the event because it is required for the SNHU-303 class she is taking. “It is very helpful to come tonight. I’ve talked to three people, and it is nice to sit down and network with them.”
There will be a series of internship and career fairs beginning on Wednesday, February 18 for students from all majors to attend to find internships and job opportunities.
Kansas Ferguson, a freshman who works for CDC said that the office wants to help students get prepared before the internship and career fairs.
Apart from having the resume review, there are events such as Impressing Recruiters & Interview lecture and SNHU Professional Styling Event to help students pick up a professional outfit. They are organizing these events to help students be successful.
The office offers a variety of services for students during their walk-in and by appointment hours.
