Development workshop gives international students tools to build resumes

Cleveland State University career services hosted the first part in a four-part professional development workshop series intended to help international students on Thursday, Sept 7.

The focus of part one was resume building, which helped give international students the skills they needed to make a good resume. Some of these skills include using action verbs and key words, making sure it’s visually appealing and having accomplishments emphasized.

Associate Director of Cleveland State’s Career Services, Amy Goldman was the one who put on the event.

“We put on this event to help international students feel comfortable coming to us if they ever want help making their resume,” Goldman said. “The entire workshop series is meant to help guide international students on the right path to find a job.”

The event also received help from Global Cleveland, an organization that assists international newcomers to economic and social opportunities in Cleveland. A connection program associate from Global Cleveland, Wenzhu Sun, was also present at the event to share how she thought Cleveland State’s career services can be helpful for international students.

“I remember when I first made my resume I thought that I had done a really good job on it, when I took it in they told me how bad it was. It may not have been the nicest thing they could have said but it helped me make a better resume.” Sun said. “Before students create a resume, if they have the opportunity to have it critiqued by career services then they should.”

The other three parts of the workshop series are “Effective networking” on Sept. 12, “Knowing your status in the USA” on Sept. 20, and “Job searching in the USA” on Sept. 26.
