Link your Resume to the School of Information Career Center

The School of Information Career Services Office provides the opportunity for students and alumni to place their resumes on the Web.

• Your resume is your representation to the potential employer; it should be error free and present your education, experience, and skills so it answers the question, "What can you do for me now?"

• Your resume should only have your name and e-mail address on it. Mailing addresses and telephone numbers can be exchanged once you have identified the inquiry is from a legitimate employer.

• Resumes that are for IS or Web-based positions should reflect your understanding of the latest technology.

• For Web-based positions, links to examples of your work are excellent - but make certain the examples reflect quality work.

• Resume links will be posted on the School of Information Résumé Website while attending school and for an additional three months following graduation. Another three months will be granted upon written request (e-mail or snail mail).

• Alumni may post resumes for up to three months upon specific written request (e-mail or snail mail).

• Resumes are listed in the "Employers" section, under "Review Student Resumes."
