Bauer clinic helps students’ r’eacute;sum’eacute;s
A visit to the family doctor for a check-up is a good way to stay fit, just as it is a good idea to have a professional’s advice to keep one’s r’eacute;sum’eacute; healthy before job hunting.
Career counselors and alumni professionals assisted Bauer students who seek suggestions on how to improve their r’eacute;sum’eacute;s on Wednesday and Thursday at the Rockwell Career Center at the C.T. Bauer College of Business. Since 2005, Bauer hosts a R’eacute;sum’eacute; ER every year.
"Some students like it because it’s fast, they can talk to people that they might not have a chance to really sit down with, and (do) some thinking," Donna M. Grady, assistant director of career counseling and leadership, said.
Despite it being a painless check-up, students were given lollipops after a ten-minute appointment with a career counselor, just like any medical exam.
Looking for a job is not easy, but getting regular check-ups to correct their r’eacute;sum’eacute;s while getting real-world insights from professionals is very useful, students said.
"I came last semester, too, and it helped me a lot," accounting junior Lubna Ali said.
The event is hosted to make students realize that they need to learn to refine their r’eacute;sum’eacute;s for upcoming career fairs, Grady said. Students attending the event either need to prepare their r’eacute;sum’eacute;s, update their sources or just make sure they were right on track.
"I haven’t updated my r’eacute;sum’eacute; since I was in high school, so this was a good chance for me to relearn everything," pre-business sophomore Anastasia Alvarez said.
For students interested in attending future meetings, two more R’eacute;sum’eacute; ERs will be hosted March 26 and 27 in Melcher Hall.
