The benefits of a quality education don’t end in the classroom; strong higher-ed institutions provide plentiful resources to help you launch your career.

Finding a quality job isn’t as simple as having the right skills, and the process has become anything but intuitive. You are likely competing against hundreds of other applicants with similar qualifications and work experience. When boiling down years of workforce preparation into a cover letter & resume, presentation is everything.

Only once in your life will there be a team fully dedicated to your career success. Your college’s career services department is that team. From landing internships, cover letters, job interview prep, and more, students who leverage their college’s career services gain a substantial advantage.

As with all other acquired skills in life, you don’t know what you don’t know. What may strike you as a perfectly compelling cover letter may have obvious flaws to an experienced career advisor. This is why approaching your job search alone is a bad idea.

Crafting a powerful application is more than merely avoiding grammatical and punctuation errors. Career advisors can help you humanize and strengthen your application, boosting your chances of landing quality interviews.

You are more than your resume; you just need to show it.
