Get Interviews with Powerful Promotional Materials: Resume, Cover Letter, and Pitch
Date: November 15
Time: 6:30 - 8:30 p.m.
Location: Cohen Lounge, Dickson Hall
Description: Is your resume communicating how you can help a prospective employer in the 15 seconds a hiring manager is going to look at it? Are you positioning yourself correctly for the job you want, or for the last job you had? In this talk, we will review resume, cover letter and pitch examples from actual job search "success stories" to get the facts straight about what works (and what doesn't). In the process, you'll learn how to write an effective resume, craft a compelling pitch to share in meetings and interviews, and write cover letters that get you the attention you want.
