The Kayseean was initially named “The KCN” for King College News and began as a regular student publication in October of 1933. It was preceded by a student magazine published biannually throughout the 1910s and 20s. The Kayseean has been, as our tagline states, the voice of King Students for over 80 years and is rapidly approaching its 90th birthday in the fall semester of 2023.

As college students, it’s essential to know how to create a practical but professional resume when applying for jobs or internships. Depending on the job, you will be tasked with creating either a curriculum vitae, also known as a CV, or a resume. Each style requires certain things to make them stand out, such as an extensive cover letter or a simple design with minimal color. The difference between the two is a CV is lengthier, often including your experience, certifications, and publications; whereas a resume is a shorter, more condensed version with work experience and relating to the job you’re applying for.
