    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."

    "During my time at Western, I have used the Career Development Center for many purposes including resume building, mock interviews, career fairs, cover letters, skype interviews, and career advice. Taking advantage of the CDC resources has allowed me to develop my professional image as a young adult. The staff is very friendly and they truly want you to succeed in whatever career path you set to accomplish."

    "As a student, I came to the CDC for a mock interview. It was extremely helpful in preparing me for my medical school interviews. I received feedback on both the content and delivery of my answers. I felt confident going into my first interview knowing that the CDC had helped me be as prepared as possible."

    "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."
