Virtual resume reviews are available at Bryant Library!
Whether you had to press the pause button on your job search during this time or will have to begin to look for new employment once we “get back to normal,” a strong resume will be a critical part of your job search campaign. Bryant Library’s career development specialist Dawn Rosenberg McKay will provide online resume reviews during our closure.
Dawn will work with you “live” during a one-hour appointment, providing real-time feedback on your resume using Google Docs. Appointments will be available at 3, 4, 5, and 6 pm on Tuesdays, March 31, and April 7 and 14. This is subject to change depending on how long the library closure lasts.
The Small Print:
- To participate, you must have a Google account. You will be required to share your resume with Dawn via Google Docs the day before your appointment.
- Please have as much of your resume completed as possible.
- Be prepared to work on your resume in real-time during your appointment! You must be online in order to receive and implement feedback. If you need more help, additional appointments may be assigned based on availability
Everything (or almost everything) you need to know about jobs, education and careers is in one compact area. The Career Management Center is essentially a miniature library, with circulation and reference sections, as well as some specialty areas. As in the larger library, books marked with the yellow "Reference" sticker or stamped "Reference - Does Not Circulate" may be used only in the library.
Examples of the types of books that are available are: resume, cover letter, interview skills guides, Civil Service exam listings & aids, graduate & professional school entrance exam aids, as well as books on various careers, occupations, etc.
