    Resume Tips

    Here are additional tips for your resume:

    Career Exploration

    Some students arrive on campus with an idea of what they wish to major in and do as a career, and others arrive ready to explore their potential majors and careers. We offer the Focus2 Assessment platform to all students.  You can access it by going to www.sage.edu/focus2.  Please contact us  for the  Passcode.

    All students also have access to the video tool, Candid Career. This website allows you to access thousands of videos from real professionals in fields you may be researching. This is a great tool to explore careers and get tips on becoming a professional in a specific industry

    You can also visit: What Can I Do With This Major and www.onetonline.org to explore careers.
