- Once you have uploaded your resume to the VMock system and applied the suggested feedback, you may receive further assistance by attending a resume review session with a career coach.
- You have 10 opportunities total to upload your resume while attending LMU; we advise that you reserve some of the uploads for further revisions after meeting with a coach and/or potential changes to your career trajectory throughout your time at LMU.
