This 4-part “Job Search Series” will walk you through most of the job or internship search process: personal branding (offered on April 3), document development, networking & interviewing. You can stay back after the 45-min. small-group workshops for one-on-one feedback.*

Apr. 10: Resumes & cover letters
Learn what makes a resume compelling, & how to write impactful cover letters. Bring a resume & job posting to work on.

Apr. 17: Networking (online & in person)
Learn effective strategies, including informational interviews, social media usage, & follow-up.  

Apr. 24: Interviewing
Learn how to accomplish both goals of an interview: marketing yourself effectively, & learning as much as you can about the company. We will also discuss how to answer visa-related, salary-related, & inappropriate/illegal questions.

All workshops: RAWL 2079 from 4:15 to 5 PM

NO RSVP needed; arrive early to get a seat!
