“The magazine gives readers the opportunity to view tangible samples and learn from them,” says Callum Linden (Artsci’20), who led the project in a position through the Summer Work Experience Program. “Working on Queen’s Best Resumes was also an incredible experiential learning opportunity for me, which will definitely be on my future resumes."

Published by Career Services, Queen’s Best Resumes isn’t just for graduating students, but for students applying for internships, volunteer positions and summer jobs. The large assortment of resume examples caters to a variety of backgrounds, skill sets and desired pathways; ensuring the success of all students.

"The magazine is a great resource for someone looking to get into the job hunt," says Hazik Ahmad (Sc'19). "For this year’s job search I have used the magazine to brainstorm new designs and formats for my resume and to help when I’m stuck trying to find out the perfect way to describe an experience from a past job."

Students also have access to resume writing workshops and one-on-one resume review appointments, to help develop resume writing skills that they can use both during their degrees and after graduation.

Students can get their copy online or by visiting Career Services.
