Preemptive apologies to any college career center that doesn't fit this description -- but every time I hear about a campus career center, it's about the bad advice they gave someone: insisting you need to have an objective on your resume, recommending salesy interview answers instead of genuine ones, giving our commenter Rob bad advice about how to email his resume, and so forth.
What's up with this? I suspect it's because they haven't done a lot of hiring themselves and are relying on outdated advice from job-hunting guides from the last century. But if colleges are supposed to be preparing students for the workforce, maybe it's time for a new type of career center, especially when their grads are going to be facing a crappy job market like this one.
Has anyone had a good experience with your college career center that you want to share?
