Canvas Module: Resume Writing

The SuccessWorks Resume Writing module gives you an easy way to supplement career learning inside and outside the classroom.

Easy to add to existing course syllabi: This module is a one-hour free-standing unit that can be uploaded into your own canvas courses.

Build these into your regular lesson plan, or as a last-minute replacement if conferences, meetings or other events take you away from the classroom unexpectedly.
