UIS Career Development Center offers resume tips

Jamie Casinova is a senior Communication major looking to become a policy reform activist, but he didn't start out on this path.

"I spent the first part of my working life in labor jobs," he said.

A spinal injury put Jamie out of work and he decided to go back to school. He's uncertain about how much of his past experience to include on his resume for his new career.

Jamie came to the Career Development Center at UIS to get assistance at their resume workshop.

"A lot of times students just don't really think about how they can make the connection between their past experiences, no matter how they acquired it to how they can market it on their resume," said Career Counselor Gale Kilbury.

The resume workshop was featured by WICS-TV 20 in a January 25, 2011, report.
