- Resumes: Career Services offers individualized assistance as students create their resumes. The Career Services advisors help students with areas such as how to format a resume in a professional manner; how to emphasize strengths, skills, and experience gained at Harris; and how to customize a resume for a specific job application in the students’ new career field.
- Cover Letters: Writing a cover letter is an important part of the job application process. The Career Services department helps students become more comfortable with this process.
