Professional Skills: Home

This guide offers support for students working on their professional skills, and helps international students navigate the process for working inside the United States.

Introduction to Professional Skills

Part of being a professional is the expert knowledge you gain through classes and experience. Sometimes that knowledge is enough to get the job you want, but most of the time, especially when you're beginning your professional career, you need practical ways to distinguish yourself from the crowd. In this research guide you'll find resources on how to write better resumes, how to write better business letters, and how to do well in job interviews.

This guide also covers some of the information resources that international students can use to help them in the U.S. workplace, as well as information useful to students from the U.S. who may be working abroad.
