Document Drop

Drop off a resume or cover letter in KUC 328 and receive a written critique. Can't make it to campus? Submit your documents to us via email, and we will return a critique to you electronically: Send to pca@mtsu.edu and include the following in the body of the email:

  • How will the resume be used: Seeking a part-time job? Full-time? Internship? Class assignment?
  • If for an internship/full-time employment, what field, industry or career cluster are you targeting?
  • What is your classification (Freshman, Sophomore, etc.)?

Resumes and cover letters should be written and reviewed before starting the actual job search and application process. Several drafts may be needed before documents are ready to use. Our goal is to return resumes and cover letters within two business days so students do not have to make an appointment with a Career Cluster Advisor. At certain times of the year, it may take a day or two longer to get documents critiqued. Please allow us two business days to look over your documents. Start the process early!

Please send your resume to us as a Word document.


InterviewStream provides you with the opportunity to participate in a practice interview and to see and hear yourself online. Using a webcam, you will be able to simulate job interviews by responding to pre-recorded interview questions and practice both verbal and non-verbal communication skills.
