Résumé & CV Feedback

Your résumé or CV should be reviewed by a minimum of three individuals before it is submitted to an employer or graduate program. This will ensure that your résumé or CV are free of errors and typos, and that you are promoting yourself effectively to your targeted audience. Take advantage of both options below. 

Center for Career Development Advisers: Provide résumé and CV critiques to hundreds of students each year. Visit the office during walk-in hours or schedule an advising meeting to meet with an adviser.

Davidson Alumni and Parent Advisers in DCAN: More than 800 Davidson alumni and parents have signed up through the Davidson Career Advisor Network (DCAN) to provide students with résumé and CV critiques. This is an excellent way to receive industry and job specific feedback from professionals in career fields of interest to you.

Résumé & CV Approval for WildcatLink Positions

Student résumés or CVs must be approved by a Center for Career Development adviser to apply to jobs, internships, and job shadowing experiences in WildcatLink powered by Handshake. Any current students or alumni may still access WildcatLink for viewing positions without approval. Visit our résumé approval page for additional details, as you may or may not be required to do so in a given year.
