*The Career Center career advisors/counselors may help you begin developing a resume or offer suggestions, however, they will not write your resume for you or provide writing tutoring or grammatical instruction. Before meeting with a career advisor/counselor, we recommend that you use the “Resume Builder” tool in Big Interview to create industry-specific resumes. We also recommend that you consider having your writing and grammar looked over by submitting documents via SmartThinking Online Tutoring (via Canvas), the Sac State Reading and Writing Center and other campus/community resources.
