In my HI 305 Management of Health Information course, we have be working in the Career Network and services since week 5. A class assignment was to upload your resume to the portal and a career services staff member would provide tips on improve it. This week we were asked to upload a cover letter for the same purpose. I find the career portal and advisors to be very instrumental to any PG graduate, it provides a great resource for networking and finding leads and job postings. And an added benefit is having a career advice assisting you with your resume for free.
I have been updating and reading the open forum on the career portal and I plan to continue using it while it’s available to me.
