Employers are looking for skills you already have!

These are just some of the skills to make sure you have on your resume and talk about in your interviews:

Critical thinking/problem solving
  • How do you provide solutions through your current experiences in which you’ve had to discuss various options without the assistance of others?
Teamwork/collaboration
  • When have you worked collaboratively with other students in group projects or research assignments?
Professionalism/work ethic
  • When have you completed tasks in a timely manner? When have you done the right thing when no one is looking? How do you dress and speak in a professional workplace?
Oral/written communications
  • Are your email communications formatted with proper greetings, grammar, and salutations? Do you have an appropriate voicemail on your phone? Do you share your thoughts and opinions in a clear and concise manner?

Resume Reviews

We recommend that every student have their resume reviewed at least once before they graduate! Take a look at the University Career Center Career Guide then email a PDF or Word version of your resume to CSTResumeDrop@temple.edu for review. Feedback is provided through Handshake. Any questions can be directed to Kelsey Craig at kelsey.craig@temple.edu
