How to create a Resume Book


Resume Books allow Employers to quickly download selections of Resumes based on various factors like Graduation Year, Clubs & Organizations, and more. Resume Book subjects are determined by the Career Center and Students/Alumni have the ability to select which Resume Books they would like their information included in. Please note that Resume Book eligibility is restricted by Student Group; therefore, not all Resume Books on your platform may be available to all Student and Alumni Users.
