RESUME CRITIQUES

It is highly recommended that you have your resume and cover letters critiqued by the Career Center Staff. 

  • To do so, email the document(s) to: careercenter@camden.rutgers.edu (Word Document, not PDF) or drop it off at the Career Center, lower level of the Campus Center. 
  • Critiques usually take 1 - 2 business days, but may take longer during busy times of year, such as the week before a career fair.
  • NOTE: Be sure to check your SPAM folders if you haven't received your resume back within 48 hours of email submission.
