Taking the Syllabus Seriously

It’s “syllabus day,” arguably the best day of the semester. It’s the day you probably don’t have to take notes or listen to lectures. The day where your only responsibility is to collect your syllabus, and then stuff it somewhere into the black hole of papers we like to call a backpack. But, this wonderful first day of classes has the potential to either make or break your entire semester. How you choose to handle your syllabus ultimately determines your future stress levels and your final grades.

The Resume You Need

The average employer spends six seconds looking at a resume. Six. Seconds! That means that you only have those few seconds to convince a future employer to keep you in the running for a job. The basics are important—your resume must be easy to read and free of mistakes. If you aren’t sure where to start, use a template from a reputable source (like these from the Stuckert Career Center). But beyond that, your resume needs to be appropriate for the job in order to help you stand out.
