  2. Click on Resume Books.

  8. Application Dates: Set the dates in which students can apply to the resume book. 
  9. Pay close attention to the Who Can View & Apply Information.
    • Having “The same group of students can view and apply” option selected allows the selected Student Group(s) to view the resume book and to apply.
    • Un-selecting “The same group of students can view and apply” option allows administrators the option of separating who can view the resume book from who can apply to the resume book. 
  10. Enter the Administrative Settings:
    • Require approval when students apply to this resume book: If “Yes” is selected, student resumes will require approval by an administrator before being included in this resume book. If “No” is selected, student resumes will be included automatically in the resume book. 
    • Allow students to initially submit resumes in Microsoft Word file format: When enabled, students can upload any file type when submitting their application to the resume book, to allow for edits made by career center users. In order to approve a resume, the file must be in PDF format; it will need to be converted before being approved and included in the resume book.
    • Are students able to download and view applicant resumes once the book is published and archived: This determines whether student users have the ability to view and download resumes when the resume book is in the “Published” and “Archived” state. 
    • Allow students to apply even when the resume book is published: If set to “Yes,” students will have the ability to apply to the resume book after it is in the published state. If set to “No,” students will not be allowed to apply to the resume book once it is published.
    • Is this resume book visible to Employers: This determines whether employers have the ability to view the resume book at any time. If enabled, the employer will be able to view the resume book while in “Published,” “Unpublished” and “Archived” states. An employer can only download a resume book if it has been published.
  11. Once the resume book is completed and published, the Office of Career Strategy & Professional Development will receive a notification to approve your resume book. Please allow 1-2 business days to process approvals.
