About this event

Resume and Cover Letter Writing Workshop (Duration: 2 – 2.5 hours)

In this workshop, participants will be led through the key ingredients to a well-written resume; including tips and techniques on both style and substance. Participants will become familiar with contemporary strategies on how to help their resume beat the systems employers use to screen out candidates. Participants will also learn the W-5 Approach (Why? When? Who? What? Where?) on how to write effective cover letters.
