Question: 20 hours on a resume would take multiple weeks, increasing the chances the position will be filled, correct?
Not necessarily! A resume does not take 20 hours to create. 20 hours is the time that it takes to create an original resume, go through multiple revisions, grammar check, format/content correction and selecting relevant information that could be tailored specifically to the intended companies/organizations. If you already have a resume, it should not take you 20 hours to tailor your resumes when adding in or taking out relevant information that are beneficial for the job. In order to prevent positions being filled, give yourself enough time to complete the job/internship application at least one week prior to the deadline date, to give some buffer time, if anything else went wrong. This way you will avoid unnecessary stress.
Question: Do the jobs and internships available through Career Services extend to areas outside of Corvallis?
YES! If you go onto Beaver JobNet, you can find numerous jobs/internships outside of Oregon and across the west/east coasts. It also depends on the time and your search options, but they should all be available.
Question: Is it okay if my resume is more than one page?
Yes, as long as the information included in the resume is relevant to the position. Usually one page is sufficient, but you can do more than a page as long as the information on the resume is relevant to the position. Always tailor your resume to every job you apply for and highlight how your previous experiences make you a good fit for the job. If your resume is longer than a page, just make sure it is two full pages and not 1.5.
