Career Services Offered
一道本不卡免费高清We know finding a job can be tough, but we are here to help! We provide students and alumni with multiple services to help you along in your job search. Here are some of the services offered.
一道本不卡免费高清We aim to help you think about what it is you want to do in terms of short and long-term employment. Together we can create a career plan based on industry information, or simply identify elements that you value in a job. We will look at skills, talents, interests, passions, and/or values as well as the current employment landscape.
Résumé and Cover Letter Assistance
According to Martin Yate, CPC and author of Knock ‘em Dead - The Ultimate Job Search Guide, “Your resume is the most financially important document you will ever own. When it works, the doors of opportunity open for you. When it does not work, you do not either.” (2016)
We will review your résumé or cover letter to ensure nothing is left out, the formatting is correct and it is ready to go!
Internship Information Sessions
We provide monthly information sessions on the two types of internships at Northwood and how you prepare and search for leads.
