Writing Center Workshops

January 29, 2014


Are you having trouble fitting your jobs and extracurricular activities on a one-page resume? Are you confused about how to write a resume that is going to be fed into a computer rather than read by a human being? Are you having difficulty targeting your cover letter and resume for a particular position? Well, the CLUE Writing Center is here to help!

The CLUE Writing Center will be conducting a Resume and Cover Letter Workshop tonight in Mary Gates Hall. Our workshop aims to guide students through the process of creating a resume and cover letter that highlights their relevant skills and effectively tailors their experiences to meet a potential employer’s needs.

Who is this for?

· All students applying for full time, part time, and holiday or summer employment.

What will participants learn?

· How to determine which personal, technical, and transferable skills to highlight

· Tips for determining employer needs

· How to analyze different resume formats and select one that best markets their skills and abilities

· How to create a tailored resume and cover letter

We hope to see you there!
