Office of Personal and Career Development (OPCD)

OPCD (Reynolda Hall, Room 230) offers workshops on writing the personal statement/admissions essay and how to find a relevant summer job/internship in the health professions. In addition, there are two opportunities you shouldn’t miss – the first is assistance in preparing a resume’. If you are looking for a summer job or internship, you will need to have a resume’. OPCD can help you find the right format for you, and help guide you in terms of knowing what is or is not appropriate for a resume’. Secondly, a wonderful service offered by OPCD is the mock interview. Once you receive an invitation to interview for an internship, job, or health professions program, OPCD will do a mock interview, designed to mimic the interview that you have scheduled. They know what questions you are likely to be asked, and can offer good advice on how to polish your interviewing skills. Reviews from students in past years have been very positive.
