Uploading Documents

Your Resume
  • The first resume you upload will be considered your “default resume. “ All employers in our database have access to default resumes. We suggest you make your first resume geared toward non-specific positions/employers.
  • Every resume or document uploaded provides you the opportunity to customize the file name. We recommend naming your files “First Name Last Name Type of document.” For example: Jane Doe Resume.
  • The first resume you upload will be "Pending" until it is accepted by a Career Services staff member (usually within 24 hours except on weekends).
  • Any documents you submit after your first resume is approved will be available immediately.
Uploading Multiple Documents (Tailored Resumes & Tailored Cover Letters)
  • Every additional resume or document uploaded provides you the opportunity to customize the file name.
  • If you have tailored a resume or cover letter for a company/position we recommend naming your files “First Name Last Name Type of document”. For example: Jane Doe Cargill Resume
