Morgantown, W.Va. (AP) -- Every dollar counts when you're unemployed, so West Virginia University's Career Services Center is waiving the $25 fee it usually charges to help graduates land a job.

The service has always been free for the first six months after graduation.

After that, the annual fee kicked in.

Director David Durham says the service lets graduates upload resumes, cover letters, recommendation letters and sample documents to a central location.

Employers can also post entry-level jobs.

Durham says the center has been getting five or six new registrations a week since it eliminated the fee.

Karissa Sims of Morgantown used the service and is now legal administrator for the discount chain Gabriel Brothers Inc. she says the center helped her find the work.
