With the sophisticated OptimalResume Builder™ you can build and manage 5 separate résumés which can all be accessed by links, as in a personal résumé website, or in the standard Microsoft Word® Document. The Flash version of the résumé can be embedded with "infobytes" or small pop-ups of background information that might be useful to the reader.
Since the résumés are online, changes made to them take place immediately so this is an advantage over the typical emailed attachment or hard copy.
OptimalResume.com is fast, easy and FREE to all Tulane Students!

In the past...
Career centers across the country provided paper-based systems for student files. These systems had severe limitations because of the time and labor involved with efficiently sending these files to employers and graduate schools.
Emerging technology and the recent flooding encouraged Tulane Career Center to seek out the best possible partner to provide an expanded online version of this service for our students.
Benefits of Interfolio include:
