    "When I found out that WIU had a Career Development Center, I quickly wanted help on my federal resume. I wanted to make sure I had all the pertinent information needed for my resume. The service that I got was constructive and informative. It should be a duty for all students who are applying for jobs and/or internships to have their resumes checked. Take advantage of other services the CDC provides like interview practice, career fair, and overall career advice. Give it a chance, you'll be glad you came in."

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 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."
