Career Development

Creating a resume--writing a cover letter or C.V.--approaching and interviewing with possible employers.  These are all crucial skills that students must develop.  The KU Honors Program offers the resources to help students to begin this process much earlier than their peers.  It is our goal to ensure that all honors students are well-acquainted with these skills by the time graduation approaches.  Even though most students pursue an advanced degree, it is crucial that these skills are learned as early as possible, so that they may be refined and improved as students pursue additional career and academic opportunities.

Students are encouraged to meet with their advisor to refine their skill set.  Additionally, there are many other resources for career development through the greater KU Community.  KU's multiple career centers are fantastic sources for professional and career development.  Can't find what you are looking for?!  Contact a KU Honors Advisor!
