    Ryanzo Perez: May 2015 Graduate - Psychology Major
    "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 helped me fine tune my resume, my interviewing skills, and my professional dress. They have provided me with a strong foundation that will help me in my future career endeavors. Because of the CDC, I have secured a job before graduation. The expertise the staff offers is second to none. I recommend for every student to visit the CDC at least one time before they graduate."

    "The Career Development Center (CDC) helped me create the perfect resume to promote my skills and education, which landed me the internship I desired within exercise science. They taught me how to showcase my transferable skills and experiences, and learn what employers are looking for in today's competitive job market."

    "The CDC has helped me in many ways, including doing a mock interview and resume critique before I interviewed for an on-campus job during my first-year at WIU. I also met with a staff member to discuss my four year plan as to what I should be doing each year to ensure I am on track for career success."
