Preparation

The Career Services office assists the Friends University students and alumni with preparing for an effective career search. There are several resources available to assist with developing a resume, writing a cover letter, preparing for interviews and learning how to establish a professional network.

Resumes and Cover Letters
Developing a cover letter and resume that is clear and concise can be challenging. When sending a cover letter and resume to a company, the documents need to be tailored so that only relevant information is shared. The Career Services office recognizes the difficulty in creating a cover letter and resume that market all the experience and skills of an individual. Therefore, the center has developed the following resources and samples to create a resume that is effective.

Interviews
Interviewing for employment can be a stressful and difficult process, especially if one has never interviewed or has not interviewed for a few years. That is why the Career Services office has developed some resources to use when preparing to interview.

Mock Interviews:
The Career Services office provides the opportunity for students to practice interviewing. Within the confines of a simulated interview, the staff can develop and ask real interview questions and then critique the student. This process can educate and prepare the student in a practical and safe environment. Simply contact Career Services to set up a day and time!
