Austin Peay State University’s revamped career services connecting students and alumni with employers

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – For years, the Austin Peay State University Career Services Office was seen as little more than a resume critiquing service. Students would occasionally stop by the small rooms inside the Morgan University Center to hear that pink paper and a Comic Sans font didn’t help with their job prospects.

The office’s small staff and operating budget didn’t leave it much room for anything else.
