That “after college” time is coming fast, and the Morehead Honors College is here to help you prepare. Whether you are drafting a resume for the first time, applying to graduate or medical school, submitting an application for a scholarship, or hoping to create a cover letter, Honors staff are here to help you through the process.

Morehead Honors College staff offer assistance through one-on-one meetings, workshops, and seminars each semester.

Application preparation

Before you begin an amazing internship, open your first medical textbook, or decide on a topic of research for your dissertation, you first have to be accepted into the program you are considering. We offer help with the application process through assistance with:

  • Resume creation: Transition from a high school to college resume or create a master resume for all purposes.
  • Resume refresher: Revise a resume for specific purposes, such as internships, jobs, scholarships, research, or graduate / professional schools.
  • Cover letter creation / refresher: Receive help in creating or revising cover letters for specific opportunities.
  • Personal statement writing: Brainstorm or revise a personal statement for professional and graduate programs, national scholarships, or other opportunities.
  • Interview preparation: Prepare for interviews for professional / graduate school or other opportunities.

Types of assistance

  • Individualized feedback: Students prepare for feedback appointments by emailing their document(s) at least a day in advance, including a job description, application prompt, or goal for revision (e.g., converting a 2-page resume to a 1-page resume, creating a resume for a specific purpose).
  • Brainstorming sessions or initial scholarship meetings: Students should come prepared with questions in mind or a list of ideas and goals.
  • Mock interviews: Students should send application materials a day in advance and provide information about where and when the interview will take place and the style of interview.
  • Walk-ins: Students should have a hard copy of their materials or be prepared to email their materials. Walk-ins are for brief questions or a quick review of materials (typically 10-15 minutes). Students who would like a more in-depth review should request an appointment.

Workshops

The Morehead Honors College also hosts workshops every semester to help students with resume writing, drafting personal statements and cover letters, and interview skills.

For workshop availability, check the calendar on the Honors Student Network.

UGA Career Center

The center provides a comprehensive range of services, programs, and materials focusing on career exploration and decision-making, skill development, experiential learning, and career employment.
