Career advisors are usually a good resource. They are supposed to explain how to build a resume, how to write a cover letter, what I should be doing this summer, what classes I should take, what careers I am best suited for, how to be rich, how to be famous, how to network, the meaning of life, what I should put in the subject line of my emails, who I’m supposed to be, and what interview techniques I should know.
But for whatever reason, the woman I met with today only gave me a few aptitude tests, glanced at my resume, and sent me on my way. She knows this is her job, right? Figuring out my life? I left CareerLab as I came it – the same broke, English major with more student loans than I can keep track of.
