    "The Career Development Center and UNI390 Career Preparation course were instrumental in my acceptance into a graduate program. During the application process, the Career Development Center's staff worked with me to ensure that my CV and Personal Goals Statement would make me stand out in the applicant pool. My Career Preparation course covered the interview process a week before my program's open house. I went into my interview feeling confident that I could handle any question. The course and center are amazing resources provided by people who are extremely invested in your success."

    "The CDC is a great place to get help with resume building, interview tips/practices, and getting set up on Linkedin. I was also advised best practices for marketing experiences such as studying abroad and academic awards on my resume. These are all of the services that I have utilized throughout my time here at WIU and I've been very satisfied working with the caring staff in the office."
