Event description

Description


This session is only open to University of Alberta Engineering Co-op students who are graduating in 2019.

During this workshop you will learn how to re-work your co-op resume for permanent positions. You will also learn how to write cover letters that get noticed in a competitive job market.

The workshop will cover the key elements (structure, formatting, content) for a combination-style resume using examples directly related to students from the Co-op Program. In addition, it will discuss the keys to writing a cover letter that won’t get you screened out of an interview.

Prior to the session attendees are encouraged to:

  • Read through the resources provided by the Engineering Employment Centre
  • Find a job posting that you are interested in applying to
  • Write a cover letter and update your resume with your most recent work-term, doing your best to align content to the job posting and incorporate formatting and content recommendations from the handouts
  • Print and bring a copy of your resume and cover letter to the workshop, so you can note edits based on what you learn during the presentation

Note: This session may be cancelled if less than 30 individuals register.
