New CPDC Resources

The guide to participating in On- and Off-Campus Interview Programs was sent to all 2Ls and 3Ls via email yesterday. Even if you are not sure about participating in the interview programs, be sure to check out the guide for information on federal government hiring, fellowships, and other opportunities.

Along with the guide, the email contained a new sample resume and a cover letter guide - watch for these to be posted to the CPDC website soon.

As always, email cpdc@umn.edu, stop by the office, or call 612.625.1866 if you have questions!
