Our Resume Books

Visumes

Growing in popularity are 'visumes' (virtual resumes); 60-90 videotaped presentations by students telling prospective employers about themselves, what type of position they're seeking, and why the company should hire them. Easy to do and a great way to get your name out.

Digital Resumes

Still the 'standard' approach and every student, even if you're not actively searching for a job at this point, should have one. In many cases, prospective employer will like your 'visume' and contact you to ask for the longer and more formal digital resume. We help with these as well.

See the instructions at the end of this section to learn how to prepare and submit your visume and/or digital resume.

Corporate Partners

The corporate partners of our Center for Sales Excellence and Customer Delight are interested in hiring UNCW sales students for internships and full-time positions. To help them (and our students) with this process, we provide a special Sales Student Resume Book to our partners each semester. This allows these partners to view your resume and reach out to you for priority interviews.

Non-Partner Sales Organizations

Additionally, we utilize the resume book when contacted by non-partner sales organizations who are looking for students to hire. This allows us to send them a list of prospective hires and to get your name and credentials distributed among a number of top employers, locally and nationally, to be considered for high-profile sales jobs. Even if you’re not actively pursuing a job at this point, you should still take advantage of inclusion in the book. This will get you on the radar of the leading firms for future consideration. It’s a very important first-step in the job search process.
