Brad Minton: What are the biggest mistakes you’re seeing when you review a college student resume?

Brad Minton believes that our careers can be a lot like a road trip. They can be exciting adventures with amazing scenery. Conversely, they can also be long frustrating treks with obstacles and construction. Regardless of the hills and valleys, his passion is to serve as your GPS for the ride. The GPS doesn’t decide where your destination lies. YOU DO. The GPS simply helps you navigate the thrilling and sometimes uncertain roads ahead and occasionally helps you find shortcuts, avoid construction, and discover new destinations you didn’t even know about! Brad is the Founder and Career Coach for Mint To Be Career, LLC, is the host of Your Career GPS Podcast, and previously served as a Career Coach at Eastern Michigan University.
