A resume is a professional marketing document that students will need as they apply for jobs or internships. It’s never too early to create a professional resume and our career advisers are happy to help students build an effective resume. Whether students are starting from scratch or just need to update what they have, we can help them highlight exactly what employers want to see.
Our guide to resume writing, along with several resume samples, can be found in the resource library section of the Salve Regina Gateway. Students who review their resume with a career adviser and upload their resume into their Gateway account will receive full access to all employer contact information.
To start the process, schedule an appointment through Gateway or call (401) 341-2913.
Interviews are typically required during the job search process, and it is vital that students plan and prepare for this important conversation. Employers expect candidates to have researched their company and to be able to describe why they would be a good fit “in this position” and “at this firm.” This may sound easy on the surface, but describing your own experiences can be difficult, and marketing yourself with confidence is even harder.
Our guide to interviewing, along with sample interview questions, can be found online in the resource library section of Gateway.
Students are encouraged to schedule a mock interview with the Office of Career Development. You tell your career adviser what types of positions or companies you are targeting, and the adviser asks interview questions appropriate to that industry. After the mock interview, you and your adviser work together to constructively critique your performance. This is a great way to get some feedback and practice your interviewing skills before it counts.
Additionally, the Office of Career Development regularly brings employers to campus as part of the mock interview program, allowing students to further practice their interviewing skills with these industry professionals. Call the Office of Career Development at (401) 341-2913 for more information and to schedule a mock interview.
