Career Center Now Online
Feb. 3, 2009 -
The University of Redlands, in collaboration with career software vendor OptimalResume, has unveiled the new online career center, a site where students and alumni can prepare for job hunting or career advancement.
Resources on the site include:
- building resumes and letters;
- creating web pages and video resumes for potential employers;
- real-time interview practice;
- an online e-folio database for students and alumni.
"Career services professionals will continue to be available for one-on-one assistance, but students will enjoy the freedom to access great career assistance, ideas and advice on their own terms," Associate Director for Student Services Christine Taitano said.
Services will be accessible from any computer by visiting https://redlands.optimalresume.com, and the user can decide how much or little information will be accessible to a prospective employer. Employers can also post job openings on the site.
The service is free for students and alumni of the university. New users will have the opportunity to attend a training session the week of February 9—look for an email invitation from the College of Arts & Sciences, the School of Education or the School of Business.
