CityU’s Resume and Cover Letter Workshop: Oct 11, 6:00pm

Resumes. Everybody’s got one. What makes some stand-out from the rest? This hands on workshop is designed to help you focus your resume on your accomplishments that will position you for where you want to go next.   The cover letter is often the first impression that an employer has of you. Is yours a good one that is targeted and highlights the best of you, or is it all about what you want to tell the recruiter?

By the end of this workshop you will:

·       Understand resume and cover letter styles and formatting

·       Build great accomplishment statements

·       Know what recruiters are looking for

·       Know why you need to tailor your cover letter every time

·       Understand what to focus on when writing your cover letters
