Individualized Advising and Counseling

Rend Lake College Career Services offers a number of individualized services to help you get that job interview once you graduate or move on from campus. All our services and steps can be reviewed and requested below.

We offer individualized career service advising and counseling. Utilizing the Focus2 career planning assessment (see below), we can provide students with personalized career advice and better assist them with resume evaluations, job search advice and career counseling to better serve their specific interests. Counseling is available by appointment or via walk-in. For a resume/cover letter evaluation, a student just needs to email ([email protected]) or drop their resume off at the career services office.
