In today's unstable and uncertain economic climate, we know that our alumni have a greater need than ever for career guidance. In order to provide timely and relevant information to our graduates, the Alumni Association and Career Development Center are partnering on "Career Resources for Alumni", which will be a regular feature in Alumni Connect. Each month, you'll find a link to articles with advice on networking, resume writing, cover letter writing and job search strategies.
Please note that we do not necessarily endorse any of the content providers, and we receive no compensation in exchange for their inclusion here.
