Resume Review

A student works on their resume with the help of a Peer Career Coach

The Center for Career and Professional Success specializes in resume preparation for the internship or job search. For assistance preparing a CV or resume for graduate or professional school admissions, contact Buckeye Careers.

Those seeking an appointment with a Career Coach are strongly encouraged to work through the process of developing an approved resume before scheduling. Students can do so by either having their resumes reviewed during Drop-In Hours OR by following the process for an electronic resume review. When you begin with an approved resume, more of the appointment time can be devoted to discussing your career options.

An approved resume is free from errors or consists of errors that can be quickly fixed. Think of your resume as a living document that grows and changes as you gain experience through volunteering, internships, part-time jobs, and other opportunities. Continue to update your resume and have it reviewed by a staff member as you add more experience. Staff members are willing to provide feedback multiple times over the course of your Ohio State career.
