    As a student who is looking for a job this seminar is quite helpful. In my opinion the best point in this seminar is how it stresses the importance of building one's resume around job description. This is probably overlooked by a lot of people including me. I used to think resume is one for each person. Making one resume for each job position is like shooting arrows right to the target and will certainly increase the "hit rate". It also shows many "what one should not do" points when making resume. From this seminar I found out some mistake I made such as highlighting wrong information (bolding university name instead of what degree I got or will get), put too much trivial information on the first 1/3 of the resume, etc. The seminar provides a helpful guide to write and review resume.

    Since it is made for Purdue student I think one point can be improved. Resume writing is a complicated topic so all points cannot be covered in one lecture. Perhaps an advertisement about Center for Career Opportunities can be put at the end of the lecture so people will know where to go when they have more questions. One thing I am confused is the video ends around 50 minutes. Since ECE694 sessions are around an hour and 15 minutes, does it mean the last 1/3 was not recorded?
