Enter Optimal Resume

Reviews of resumes and cover letters may be requested by submitting your document in Optimal Resume's Review Center, or by attaching it in an email to Noelle Rosenblum nrosenbl@eastern.edu (Word document preferred).  Please provide some information about your goals and any specific questions you have about your document.  You may be contacted to discuss your situation further prior to the review.  We can also provide reviews of multiple other career documents such as curricula vitae, reference lists and LinkedIn profiles.

GPS Career Services can provide four reviews annually per person per document type (e.g., resume, cover letter), time and availability permitting.  For those who prefer to meet in person, appointments are available at the St. Davids campus, or by phone or Skype.  Evening slots can be accommodated if needed, as schedules allow.  For an appointment or other assistance, please call 484-581-1264.


Please join us for an Optimal Resume user orientation webinar featuring the advanced capabilities of Optimal 2.0! Webinars are half-hour introductions to the benefits and features of Optimal Resume. Just listen in to receive instruction on how to use the tool or take the opportunity to ask any questions you may have.

Webinars are offered on a variety of modules and topics and all are free.  Some training webinars are accessible only to administrators of Optimal Resume. To ensure that you select a webinar open to students and alumni, click on the webinar title in the calendar and make sure webinar says "Job Seeker Training".
