Alpha Phi Alpha Gets Ready for the Real World
“We all wanted to get our résumé critiqued, because it is one of the most important factors in applying for anything in the real world. We have all heard stories of how law schools, medical schools, and businesses are constantly going through résumés and throwing away those that are not up to standard. Because of the Toppel Career Center's wonderful staff, we no longer have to worry about that happening.” Kevin Ramseur II, Alpha Phi Alpha
