At WERC, we are happy to provide you with constructive feedback (e.g. format, overall appearance, relevant content, etc.) on your documents, but please be aware that this is not an editing service. 

WERC is staffed by Career Profile Advisors (CPAs) who also assist the Career Counselling team to deliver career and employment support to Western students. They receive comprehensive training on employment document development and receive ongoing training throughout the year.

Would your Council or Club like their own resume, cover letter, and CV feedback session? Workshops for student groups are facilitated by Career Profile Advisors. Visit this page to see the instructions on completing the workshop request.
