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.

Once you've created a great resume for the job search using Savviest, don't forget you can upload that document to your profile on Handshake 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
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.
