Following are two examples of resumes provided by the STCC Career Services Department. Later, you will learn to create your own resume using an online tool called Optimal Resume™.
How to Gain Work Experience Before You Graduate
While you are thinking about your resume, it is a good idea to consider how you can begin developing future job skills. One way is to become involved in student clubs, organizations, and special interest groups at STCC. Information about organizations can be found in the Career Services brochure.
Internships and on-campus jobs allow students to gain major-related work experience in a variety of majors and can be paid or unpaid. For more information, look at your degree requirements and contact Career Services or the Department Chairperson. You can also visit Internship Benefits, Requirements & Application (tn.edu). Career Services continually receives new full and part-time job listings from employers that can be found on the Career Services website at: Jobs and Career Fairs (tn.edu)
Volunteer Experience is also an excellent way to develop career skills. Volunteering through the Southwest Center for Service-Learning & Civic Engagement allows students to use their skills and training to help meet local community needs.
