Secrets of Résumés and Cover Letters that Work

As jobs remain scarce, employers stay selective about the applicants they interview. There are, however, ways a résumé and cover letter can set you apart from other candidates—if you know what to do.

Whether you’re entering the workforce, between positions, or looking to change jobs, this two-part workshop can help you:

    • learn which experiences, training, and abilities employers want and need to know,
    • showcase talents and experiences in ways that project confidence, not arrogance,
    • present industry and company knowledge in ways that enhance applicant credibility, and
    • leave a favorable, lasting impression on prospective employers.

By discussing little-known strategies in a fun, informative, and supportive forum, you’ll learn ways to improve the reception of your application materials.

Participants are invited to bring a current resume and/or cover letter to reference during discussions.
