Resume Guide

A resume won't get you a job but it definitely can NOT get you one.

This is one of the most important pieces to the Student Expo. Follow the basic guidelines to the right so you are ready to submit your resume when you register for the event.

Research Video Guide

Optional, but recommended to showcase your work!

In the past expos, in-person poster presentations were front and center. We will continue this feature virtually via a short, pre-recorded video presentation.
