Resume Review

Scheduling a Resumé Review Session

  • Students/alumni may schedule an in-person, telephone or virtual appointment to meet with a Career Development Center staff member to have a rough draft of a resumé reviewed.  Appointments are scheduled via Handshake. We encourage you to make an appointment at least two weeks prior to the date that you need your resume.  Review the video and samples and then e-mail a draft of your resume, as an attachment, to resumes@clarion.edu.

Steps to Take Prior to Your Appointment

  • Learn the basics of resumé writing by watching our videos above.
  • Prepare a rough draft of your resumé.
  • E-mail your resumé draft as a Microsoft Word attachment to resumes@clarion.edu
    Please allow 3-5 business days for a review when classes are in session and 7 - 10 business days during periods of high-volume submissions, during the summer session, and over breaks.
  • Bring your laptop or an electronic version of your resume to your appointment so you can easily make revisions to your rough draft during your consultation.
