Opt-In: Students and recent graduates (defined in spring 2021 as College of Business Administration and Graduate School of Management alumni who graduated in Aug. 2019-Dec. 2020) may opt-into the Business Career Center Resume Book Program by completing this online form. Students and recent graduates may feature their resume in the Resume Book Program until they have confirmed post-graduation plans through an accepted offer for full-time employment, graduate school, military service or volunteerism.
Opt-Out: Once post-graduation plans are secured, the student or recent graduate should opt-out of resume book inclusion by completing the share your success online form. If BCC staff learn of an accepted full-time job offer or other confirmed post-graduation plans, staff reserve the right to withhold the student or recent graduate’s resume while following-up with the individual to learn more.
Current Employment & Inclusion: If you are currently employed and don’t want your current employer to learn that you are open to new opportunities through resume book inclusion, please do not opt-into the resume book. BCC staff will not be able to selectively withhold individual resumes based on the employer requesting the book. BCC staff suggest that opting-into the resume book is similar to posting “open to work” within your LinkedIn profile.
Handshake Resumes: Business Career Center (BCC) staff will create the resume book based on the resumes students and recent graduates who have opted into the Resume Book Program have uploaded to Handshake and “featured on profile.” Handshake profiles will need to be set to the “community” or “employers” privacy setting. Please review this Handshake information page for details. Students and recent graduates are responsible for keeping the resume “featured on profile” up to date.
Resume Access: BCC staff will create two resume books (1) undergraduate students graduating in May/Aug. 2021 and recent undergraduate alumni, and (2) current students and recent alumni of the Graduate School of Management students. For the spring 2021 Resume Book Program, “recent alumni” will include alumni who graduated Aug. 2019-Dec. 2020.
Each book will be shared as access to a file folder containing two documents: (1) a directory-style summary of students/graduates with name, email, major(s)/program information and student provided goal statement and geographic focus and (2) a PDF of resumes organized alphabetically by last name. The file will be shared through a OneDrive link with an expiration date of 30 days and a password for the employer recipient. After expiration, the employer may request an updated resume book.
Student Communication: Within the first and third weeks of each month, BCC staff will share an update with all students who opted-into the Resume Book Program summarizing recent employer requests for resume book access. Because BCC staff will not be able to email students/graduates following each employer request, it’s important to be prepared – know your resume well, and if an organization that you have not heard of or applied to contacts you, be prepared to speak extemporaneously.
