Our online, cloud-based platform makes it easy and fun for you to participate.
Through UChicagoConnect, participants engage in 10-minute text-based online chats with a Career Coach. Coaches will review your resume in real time and offer you one-on-one feedback.
Lines for the coaches may form. While you wait, stop into one of the other chat rooms to network with other UChicago Alumna/us. You could ask a peer to review your resume, share job search tips or create a new contact.
The chats are text-based and timed, allowing you to quickly meet new people, exchange contact information, and walk away with several new connections you didn't have before. Each chat is saved, making it simple to look back at your history, review your notes, gather contact information and follow up.
Grab your computer, tablet, or smartphone and join us for spring cleaning and resume revising. Register today.
