November workshop – Create Effective Resumes and Cover Letters for Success
This workshop will teach you how to create effective resumes and cover letters. Whether you are looking for a summer job, employment related to your program, or you are a soon-to-be graduate, it is important to customize your resume to demonstrate your qualifications and show how you fit the job target. Effective resumes will attract employers' attention and secure an interview! A cover letter is your introduction to an employer and/or company, and is an important part of applying for employment. Cover letters convey much about who you are, including your ability to communicate and market yourself in writing. A well-written cover letter can convince the employer to read your resume.
