How can you engage with us?
All resume reviews will be done by the Kettering College writing center and the group of tutors that are employed there. It is our expectation that you have virtually met with a writing center tutor and had your resume reviewed prior to applying to any role. First impressions are so important – your resume is typically the first impression that your future employer has of you! You can easily book a virtual appointment with a writing center tutor here:
During this conversation, we will ensure your resume has been reviewed by the KC Writing Center, walk through what an interview looks like in your respective desired area, practice with a few mock interview questions, and discuss follow-up strategies.
