Save your favorites to help guide your college and/or career discussions with your parents and/or school educators. Use the advice to further educate yourself on your favorite careers, complete prerequisites, and pursue internships and job openings. Begin exploring today!

Document Drop

Drop off a resume or cover letter in KUC 328 and receive a written critique. Can't make it to campus? Submit your documents to us via email, and we will return a critique to you electronically: Send to pca@mtsu.edu and include the following in the body of the email:

  • How will the resume be used: Seeking a part-time job? Full-time? Internship? Class assignment?
  • If for an internship/full-time employment, what field, industry or career cluster are you targeting?
  • What is your classification (Freshman, Sophomore, etc.)?

Resumes and cover letters should be written and reviewed before starting the actual job search and application process. Several drafts may be needed before documents are ready to use. Our goal is to return resumes and cover letters within two business days so students do not have to make an appointment with a Career Cluster Advisor. At certain times of the year, it may take a day or two longer to get documents critiqued. Please allow us two business days to look over your documents. Start the process early!

Please send your resume to us as a Word document.

CareerShift

The CareerShift search tool returns results from every career site and job board. Save and organize relevant jobs that meet your search criteria, whether you search by job title, company name, keywords, or location. You can also get up-to-date contact information, including e-mail addresses, for millions of companies; access in-depth information about contacts and companies posting jobs; and record, save and store your correspondence history records automatically.
