"I have used CSU Career Development & Exploration both as a student and as an alumni. They have been very helpful by using an organized, structured process when reviewing my resume. Their feedback prepared me for the post-graduate professional world, where I landed a job in a major city.
The CDE team has also helped me polish my resume recently to ensure it is up to date. Thankful to have them as a resource!"
