Two industry professionals, Judy Schulenberg and Catherine Graber, were accompanied by two of UH’s career counselors, who have a combined 50+ years of experience in hiring processes and in helping students tailor their resumes.

Students had the opportunity to ask questions and receive instant feedback during one-on-one help sessions. Some of the most concerning questions were related to length of the resume, objective statements, and use of keywords.

With large demands on improving interviewing skills, our organizations plan to follow-up on this event with an interview workshop scheduled for the spring semester.
