Highlights of Resume and Interview Activity 2000-01

  • During the 2000-01 academic year, 9697 students entered their resumes electronically for full-time and internship positions.
  • Approximately 18,200 interviews were scheduled between students and the 696 employing organizations interviewing through the Center for Career Opportunities.
  • The decrease in number of organizations interviewing through the CCO this year compared to the 99–00 academic year was due in part to the softening national economy early in 2001, and in part to students choosing fewer organizations to interview.
