Writing an effective resume requires an understanding of both format and content, as well as the needs of an employer.  By many standards, cover letters are just as important, but they can be trickier than resume writing.  In terms of making or breaking a job offer, the thank you letter is often a critical component.  Attend this session, presented by the Center for Career Services, to learn how to make your job search correspondence stand out!

Who Should Attend
This event is open to students from all majors. No registration is required.  Students must bring their Montclair State University Student IDs.
