University of Illinois alumni from the Chicago, Springfield and Urbana campuses are invited to participate in November's “Quick Resume Inspection Project”. The first 20 alumni who send a resume to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Quick Resume Inspection” in the subject line will receive a quick 5-point resume inspection. Alumni should also include a description of their career goals including their targeted industry, function and position level.
The 5-Point resume inspection will include the following.
Point 1: Is it readable?
Point 2: Is it error free?
Point 3: Is it targeted?
Point 4: Is it accomplishment focused?
Point 5: Are there any red flags?
Each area will be rated between 1=needs improvement and 5=excellent.
An inspection sheet will be sent back to each alumnus with an indication of whether the resume needs to be improved, how to improve the resume or whether a more detailed review by a career adviser will be needed. Resumes will be inspected by Client Contact and Office Operations Specialist Rosahlee Solomon and the inspection sheets reviewed by Vice President Julie L. Bartimus before being returned.
The sender must be an alumnus from a University of Illinois campus (Chicago, Springfield or Urbana)
For those of you who already know that you need more than a quick resume inspection, call us at 312/575-7830 to schedule an advising appointment with a career adviser. The cost for a 1-hour advising appointment is $60.
