Resume/Cover Letter Development

Please feel free to email a rough draft of your resume and cover letter for review.

I will provide suggestions/feedback as soon as possible! If you don’t know where/ how to start a rough draft, no worries! We have you covered. Please reach out to Ashley directly for guidance & assistance.

Interviewing/Soft Skills Techniques

Performing a mock interview is a great way to practice and improve interviewing skills.  It also helps with understanding the importance of soft-skills, and how to effectively highlight them during the interview process.  Schedule an appointment for your mock interview today! More resources are available below.

Individualized Career Exploration

A career assessment is a great way to help with identifying your interests, skills, and values in order to match them up with potential careers.  Feel free to take a career assessment using our Career Coach tool.  It is also a great tool for identifying job market information and open positions.

The Career Pathway Coordinator is available to assist with reviewing your individual assessment results, or to explore career options.
