Even as a freshman, it is important to start building and updating a resume and cover letter to use for internships, scholarships, and job opportunities. The A_LAB offers many resources to help students with a first resume writing experience or to aid alumni in the career search. We recommend that you update your resume and cover letter every year to reflect your latest jobs and experiences and leadership on campus. A portfolio is a great way to show off your best work to potential employers. Whether you’re pursuing a career as a writer, a photographer or a graphic designer, you should be building a portfolio.

The information in this section is just a sample of the resources available to you in the A_LAB. Feel free to contact us for help!
