Resume Building

The resume is the single most important thing in a student’s search for a job or an internship. You can have fantastic credentials, but if you cannot convey your worth on the single sheet of paper known as the resume, you will have a hard time finding an internship or a job. Conversely, you may not be the best prospect, but if you play your cards right, people may think you would be a valuable asset to their company.

As a Computer Science and Business major, I was required to take BUS 001 my freshman fall. BUS 001 is Introduction to Business and gives students a general overview of what to expect as a business student. Students are assigned several writing assignments over the course of a semester; the second assignment is a resume. For me, this was the first time I had to write a resume. I struggled at first, but my professor helped me improve my resume to the point where it actually seemed pretty decent. Over the course of a year, I have been slowly adding things to my resume such as work experience. Today at the career fair, I will have a chance to see how my resume will fare in real practice. I will continue to revise my resume until it is outstanding.

Business students are required to take BUS 001, so all business students have a resume. However, other students are not required to have a resume through a certain class like BUS 001. This does not mean they are at a disadvantage. Career Services offers many resume workshops and will hold one on one meetings with students to perfect their resumes. Lehigh University does extremely well in caring for its students; it makes an active effort to help its students grab an edge in the job market. You cannot say the same thing about most other schools.
