The Elon Job Network (EJN) lets students schedule appointments with seasoned career advisors, who’ll offer insights to amplify the resume’s visual appeal and content. These experts will equip students with the tools to stand out in a sea of applicants.  Additionally, to add a touch of professionalism, students can drop by the SPDC in Moseley Center 140 before the fair to print copies of their resumes on high-quality resume paper.

“Through these preparations, students can arrive at the fair prepared to engage with employers face-to-face, gain insights into various industries, learn about company cultures, and access job openings that might not be advertised elsewhere.” said Vice President for the Student Professional Development Center Brooke Buffington.
