Step 1, Upload your resume and cover letter to Handshake where the documents will be reviewed by one of our career professionals. Engage via Handshake! Update documents and feel free to comment on their editing suggestions.
Step 2, If you think you need additional feedback or want to talk about your overall career plan, make an appointment with a Career Specialist. The appointments run up to 45 minutes and are far more successful if you first work through Step 1.
