Sentao Zhou - SWU Graduate

“Career Services helped me to begin the entire process of looking for jobs from scratch…and offered me a lot of valuable advice through the time I was making resumes and cover letters. Career Services also has kept me updated of the jobs available in my field, which opened up many opportunities for me to consider. After I received the offer letter, I was also able to receive the help from [Career Services] to do the further negotiation with the company. I learned so much more than just job applications from Career Services, but also great career planning and future advice.”

I would advise all rising juniors and seniors to reach out to Career Services to learn how to build their resume, how to interview, and how to job hunt. It has been so helpful to me and it is free, so why not?”

“With fifteen years at my employer, change felt uncomfortable and difficult. My career advisor helped me to develop my resume, incorporate social networking into my change strategy, and identify areas for improvement as well as strengths I could capitalize on immediately. Ultimately, I acquired the position I desired from the start of my program. I cannot overemphasize the importance of SWU Career Services in my recent career progress.”
