Again this year, we will be offering Resume Reviews at the upcoming Region XII Conference in Reno for those newcomers and others who are interested in receiving feedback about their resumes, cover letters, and career goals.  Resume reviews will be conducted by experienced NAFSAns Wednesday through Friday, during session time periods at the conference.  The Resume Reviews are planned as 30-minute one-on-one interactions.  Sign-up for your Resume Review at the REGISTRATION TABLE when you arrive at the conference, or check each morning for times that remain open.  Bring a copy of your resume and cover letter to the review.


Feel free to contact Conference Chair Steve Jacques at if you have any questions!
