Job Seeking Tools
Savviest helps you write tailored, successful resumes and cover letters, find jobs that fit your background and get hired. Make the job-seeking process faster and easier by creating persuasive resumes that follow industry best practices, are adapted specifically for each job to which you apply and pass muster when evaluated by employer applicant tracking software. You can learn more about the ways Savviest can help with your job search and applications and how to write amazing, education-first resumes as a student or recent grad.
Career Services is offering Savviest Pro free of charge to any CMC student. Access code and added details are available on the Basecamp Career Services page. Alumni, who are members of the Alumni Association also can also use the tool and should contact the Alumni Office for access information.
Once you've created a great resume for the job search using Savviest, don't forget you can upload that document on the CMC job board to connect with employers who are hiring. Students must first log in to Basecamp to access the job board. Alumni maintain their accounts even after graduation, and access is free and ongoing.
Remote Work Resources
CMC is continuing to monitor the challenges associated with COVID-19 and its impact on student internships. We have partnered with Parker Dewey to make Micro-Internships more accessible to students and recent graduates. As such, we would like to remind students of the opportunity to pursue these short-term, professional, paid work experiences which can be completed remotely.
Through Micro-Internships, students can demonstrate their skills, explore career paths, and develop their professional networks. These paid opportunities typically range from 5 to 40 hours of work, and students can be selected for multiple Micro-Internships.
