The Resilience Resume Project

The Resilience Resume Project is a collaborative effort of the Career Center and Office of Health Promotion designed to help Villanova students see that success does not happen overnight and the journey to it is often full of difficult moments – even for the most successful among us. To illustrate this, members of the Nova Nation have shared stories including things like jobs they didn’t get, awards they didn’t win, times when they failed a big test or ideas they had for a career that didn’t work out. This is what we’re calling an example of a “Resilience Resume,” sharing defining moments in a career through a different lens. We hope you will be inspired by their ability to embrace the challenges, summon their courage and resilience and willingness to vulnerably share these moments with you.
