My Resume Bar

Do you want to get your resume or LinkedIn profile reviewed without making an appointment? Do you want to eat a chocolate bar at the same time?

If the answer to those questions is “Yes!”, then join your peers at My Resume Bar (or, fondly called: MRB). Launched last year, MRB is run by trained master’s students who will support you in creating, editing and perfecting your resume and LinkedIn profile.

Instead of waiting to make an appointment, just drop by the RGL Lounge three times a week, every week. Scroll down to see our times and to read a little bit about our amazing Peer Advisors.
