For simple resume critiques you can email your resume to career@tntech.edu. We can usually have the resume back to you in less than 24 hours from submission.

Handshake: Tech students using Handshake to find employment opportunities should see little to no difference while we are on the modified delivery model. Employers will still place jobs and be able to search resumes. Likewise students will still be able to apply for jobs as usual.

Employers: Employers wanting to place jobs with Tech can still utilize the Handshake system as always. Other employer requests can still be done via phone or email. Employers needing assistance with interviewing Tech students should call us for more specific instructions concerning date, time, and method. Employers with ongoing recruiting/interviewing efforts with Tech students should proceed as you normally would.

Career Readiness Programs: All in person Career Readiness Programs scheduled for Spring 2020 are now cancelled. The Center for Career Development has made it possible to complete already started Career Readiness Certifications by clicking on the link below and following the instructions.
