Start with a virtual resume review powered by AI  

  • Smart Resume provides instant feedback on resume formatting, content, and the impact your resume will have with a recruiter
  • Please be aware that current students receive ten resume uploads for review each school year which refresh in July. To request additional uploads, please email careers@usc.edu

Create a resume using an online template

  • Smart Editor shows you how to construct a resume for the first time using a campus template or convert an existing copy seamlessly to the available templates. This can be accomplished within the portal!
  • Doctoral students can also access a Curriculum Vitae template

Tailor your resume to a specific industry or application 

  • Resume Optimizer helps you create a recruiter-ready resume targeted toward a specific job description or your desired career track.
  • This is excellent preparation for applications that ATS systems will review, which scan for keywords, skills, and competencies on a candidate’s Resume.

Explore career options and develop an action plan

  • Career Fit contains a library of different industries and jobs allowing users to find a career path that matches their interests.
  • Students who upload their resumes can view a Fit Score (matching involvement, skills, and experience to related pathways).  Users then receive detailed feedback to create an action plan to prepare for their desired career path.
  • As with Smart Resume, users get ten resume uploads per year but only receive five feedback reports annually, which compare resumes to career targets for a Fit Score.

Prepare to market your personal brand 

  • Elevator Pitch  and Mock Interview are online modules that allow you to prepare your conversations with recruiters
  • Users receive instant feedback on body language, the quality of their pitch speech content, and suggestions for improvement.  Within the module users can rewatch their recording with time-aligned feedback.

If you have any questions or need to request a few additional resume uploads, please email careers@usc.edu
