Caitlyn Cross - SWU Graduate

I used Career Beam, and I also received help with my resume, interview skills, and parts of my medical school applications. I found that the interview help was the most beneficial…After a lot of practice interviews and time meeting with Career Services, I was able to improve and refine my interview skills.
