In the words of an Eller student:

"I have utilized the PDC Associates in order to update my resume. When I met with the associate, they gave me constructive feedback on the main points that I should highlight, action words, organization, and skill sets. After reconstructing my resume, I feel more confident that it will stand out to a potential recruiter. The PDC Walk-in hours was a beneficial tool for me as I begin to apply for Summer Internships and jobs."

Caroline Ochoa, Pre-Business '18
