Register with ECC
2 steps to register with the Engineering Career Center:
STEP 1 - Resume Review Send your most up-to-date, polished resume to
in .doc or .docx format. Search different resume styles. Not recommended: online templates with lots of formatting. Keep it simple and concise; the “objective” section should be short; check it for typographical errors prior to emailing it to ECC. For ideas, look at this link with resume ideas: http://www.uic.edu/depts/ocs/Career-Planning-Guide.html
STEP 2 - Fill out your profile online
Log into: http://www.uiccareers.com
Your ID is your entire UIC email address. Your password is not your UIC password for your email. It is separate. Click on “forgot password;” the system will email you a temporary password. Later, you can change your password to whatever you want it to be under the “Account” section. Completely fill out all data for your personal and academic profile. You must update these each term with current GPA, current student year, and new mailing address, etc. It is not linked to UIC databases. After your resume has been reviewed, upload it to UICcareers using the “Documents” tab. Give your resume a title (not “my resume”). Example: JaneSmith _EE_UIC_InternshipResume.pdf
