The Career Center offers Resume Books as another job search resource for active job seekers.
The Resume Books focus on very broad career fields and summer or full-time employment. Books may also have certain restrictions that will limit resume submissions to a certain timeframe or even a certain pool of candidates. Review the Resume Book descriptions in Callisto carefully for full details before submitting your resume.
By submitting your resume into any Opt-in Resume Book(s), you are authorizing the Career Center to include your resume in the selected Resume Book(s) when released to employers.
