Job and Internship Preparation

The Haslam Undergraduate Professional & Career Development team can help you find opportunities to develop the skills desired by employers. We can also prepare you to articulate your experience to employers. Set up an appointment via Handshake to meet with a career consultant about your search process.

Professional & Career Development Resources


Our team offers a number of resources to help you develop your resume, whether you are just starting to shape it or are looking for tips to polish it up.

We recommend that undergraduate students in the Haslam College of Business follow this resume format when creating their professional resumes. This format is accomplishment-based in nature and has been vetted as appropriate for most applicant-tracking systems.

The Resume Writing Guide provides tools to help you create both a professional resume and a persuasive cover letter. It includes an extensive checklist of what to include on your resume, comprehensive instructions on crafting resumes and cover letters and samples of each.

Job Search

The Undergraduate Professional & Career Development team works with the Center for Career Development to help Haslam students meet their immediate job needs and strategize their career goals. The Center provides a job search platform to find full- and part-time jobs and industry-specific postings. Haslam undergraduates may also contact us for more information on job searches and job placement and on which career fairs held each semester would align with their career objectives.
