Career Services

The mission of the Tusculum College Office of Career Services is to equip students with the necessary knowledge, skills, and abilities required beyond the classroom to successfully transition from college to either graduate school or the world of work.

Interview & Resume Tips

The Office of Career Services can provide assistance in reviewing resumes and interview preparation.


Research the organization which you plan to interview.

Employers are interested in candidates who ask intelligent questions and are able to make intelligent conversation based on what they know about the organization. Learn as much as you can beforehand. Know the company’s products and services, profit margin, management, culture, dress code and anything else you can think of.

Good sources are the Office of Career Services, internet resources, and informational interviews.
