Resumes and Personal Branding

What’s YOUR career story?

Resumes, cover letters, elevator pitches, and LinkedIn profiles are all important ways for you to strategically communicate about your skills, strengths, experiences, and passions with potential employers. The SCLP’s career coaches can work with you one-on-one to develop a strong personal brand and powerful resume/cover letter. We can even help you design a free digital business card!

Have an urgent need to spiff up your resume right away and you don’t have time to schedule a coaching session? You also have access to “after normal business hours” resume reviews through our partnership with Tutor.com
