Online Tools and Resources

LinkedIn

LinkedIn is the leading professional network on the web used to connect with classmates, faculty/staff, and industry professionals as well as to discover new opportunities for internships and full-time positions.

Optimal Resume

Optimal Resume is a comprehensive, web-based application for students to create resumes. However, our office finds the interviewing help on the site invaluable. Students can engage in a mock interview, choosing the type of interview questions or selecting a more random interaction. 

Refer Your Students

We encourage you to refer your students to the Career, Co-op & Internship Services office to assist students in this process.
