    Resume Tips:
    • Tailor your resume to the job description. Many employers use software to search for keywords and, if your resume doesn't have the right key words related to the job duties, a human being may never even see it.

    • LIMIT YOUR RESUME TO ONE PAGE, if possible.

  • Career Services Mock Interviews

    To schedule a mock interview to practice your interview skills with a Career Services staff member, call our front desk at 864-592-4820 to schedule an appointment.
