I had two different grad assistant positions during my time at ECU. One was working in the accounting dept (proctoring exams, grading stuff, etc). The other was in the College Of Business's Career Services office. My job there was 50% finding and feeding positions into the campus job search page and helping students apply.

The other 50% was resume review. Basically, if a student wanted to apply for a job we listed, they'd send their resume to me first for my review. Most college students have zero idea how to put together a resume. It's either not consistently formatted, has a bunch of paragraphs instead of quick bullets, or is 3 pages long (unless you're the CEO of Exxon, you don't need more than a 1-page resume). I'd make edits and send it back. Once finalized, it went through with the application.

I never really realized how huge a service that is until I got over to the hiring side. If you have a kid at ECU who is looking for a job, send them to the COB career services office. I'd be surprised if they wouldn't do this service for any student, regardless of major.

And yes, I realize that we're waaay off topic here.
