Resume books are a great way for employers who are looking to fill multiple open positions at their organization. The resume books collect student resumes for employers to review, interview, and potentially hire. They can also be used for on-campus information sessions and applying for internship programs.

  2. Click on Resume Books.
  3. Select + New Resume Book.
  4. Name: Set a title for the Resume Book that is visible to career center users, students, and employers.

  8. Application Dates: Select the start and end date 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 automatically be included 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 resume applicants once it is published and archived: This determines if 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 if 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 If enabled, the employer will be able to view the resume book while in ‘Published’, ‘Unpublished’, and ‘Archived’ states.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 CSPD Office will receive a notification to approve your resume book. Please allow 1-2 business days to process approvals.
