Some resumes have the “x factor” and some don’t. Want to find out what makes a hiring manager toss a resume directly into the garbage? Some reasons may seem obvious but some may surprise you!


Career Centers across campus have an extensive array of fairs, events, workshops and more on offer this semester! Visit Handshake for full details.
