Here's what students are saying about Career Services:
“I can’t thank Career Services enough for the assistance they have given me! I worked directly with Lisa and she answered every question I had about my resume. When I walked in I was nervous, but she made me feel at home. Prior to my meeting I had researched resume information. However, there is a lot of conflicting advice about resumes on the Internet. It was great to be able to ask questions from someone who speaks directly with HR departments, from multiple companies, in order to have up-to-date knowledge. If you are a student and you have not used Career Services I would say do not walk, but run over if you are in need of career advice! Norse Up!!”
