  1. Prepare resume, cover letter and reference list. To prepare the first draft of your resume. Use the resources (templates) at the Office of Career Services: Follow this link...
  2. Have the resume, cover letter and reference list professionally critiqued. To Contact the Office of Career Services to make an appointment to have your draft resume critiqued, please call the Office of Career Services at 931-221-6544 or e-mail them at careerservices@apsu.edu

At a time when unemployment is high and hiring is lagging in many disciplines/majors/fields, the Bureau of Labor Statistics is predicting that jobs for computer scientists will increase by 19% between 2010 and 2020, a healthy growth rate. Unfortunately, professions in the Computer Science major are rarely available locally. The job opportunities are spread out across the country. Therefore, all computer science majors should keep an open mind and be ready to relocate. In order to fully maximize your range of possible careers, you should start searching for jobs early, preferably online. The best time to begin this is one year before graduation- the summer holidays are a great time to begin looking.
Here are some websites you can use to setup automatic email alerts:

Employers often sent job advertisements to us or they simply ask us to pass new job information to our computer science students. We will post the job listing here (for about one to two months), but the Computer Science Department does not provide any official support for job searches.
