Office of Personal and Career Development (OPCD)


The OPCD offers workshops on writing a personal statement/admissions essay and how to find a relevant summer job/internships 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. The OPCD can help 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 the OCPD is the mock interview. Once you receive an invitation to interview for an internship, job, or health professions program, the 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.
