Opportunities listed in C4T for GVPT majors

 The Career Center is transitioning from Optimal Resume to an integrated Resume Builder 
The University Career Center & The President's Promise is transitioning from Optimal Resume to an integrated Resume Builder within our Careers4Terps database. This move will make it easier for students and alumni to develop a resume using an online system and immediately make it available to thousands of employers who are searching to fill full-time, part-time, and internship positions. If you have documents in the Optimal Resume software, you MUST download them to your personal hard drive by 11:59 pm, April 27.   We are unable to transfer documents for you from the Optimal Resume vendor to Careers4Terps.  You can access Optimal Resume via Careers4Terps or directly at

The Optimal Resume service will be deactivated on April 28, and the integrated Resume Builder in Careers4Terps will be activated on May 1                                                                                                                                                                                                               
 REMEMBER:  The deadline to download your documents to your hard drive is 11:59 pm, April 27.   If not done by this date, you will unfortunately lose them.

Employers participate in our daily rotation by providing 1-on-1 career advice to students/alumni on issues ranging from resume assistance to answering the question "how do I break into your field?". Come learn about ways you can improve your skills and get feedback from industry professionals about what they look for in a candidate.
