Preparing for Your Appointment

When you meet with your librarian, please make sure to have all your work information with you. If you don’t already have a resume, please click here to see what’s required. You can copy this template (available on Google Docs) and tweak it to fit your needs. If you can’t use a computer, ask the front desk to print a hard copy for you to write on.

Also, think about where you’d like to work or what you’d like to do. It helps in the job search process when we have an idea of where to look. If you need help determining what you want to do, try some of the career development resources on Brainfuse or Peterson’s:
