Resumes and Interviews

Your resume is one of the essential tools needed to land an interview. It must be an easy-to-read and well-structured presentation which is targeted toward the job for which you are applying.

Interviews are your opportunity to sell yourself to a potential employer and convince them that you are the best person for the job. Preparation is key to a successful interview! Practice interviewing skills and answering common behavioral interview questions and research the company as much as possible. 

Resources for helping you write a resume and develop your interviewing skills:

  • Career Readiness Seminars and Workshops – All events are listed on the University Calendar.
  • Career Consultants – schedule an appointment via TWU Connect with your consultant to review more in-depth resume questions/concerns or to schedule an in-person practice (mock) interview.
  • TWU Connect – access the wealth of information in the Resources section.
  • Job Search Handbook [PDF] – detailed information on resumes and cover letters.
