THIS THURSDAY EVENING: Cover Letter and Resume Workshop!


Are you having trouble fitting your jobs and extracurricular activities on a one-page resume?  Are you confused about how to write a resume that is going to be fed into a computer rather than read by a human being?  Are you having difficulty targeting your cover letter and resume for a particular position?  Well, the CLUE Writing Center is here to help!  

This Thursday evening, the CLUE Writing Center will be conducting a Cover Letter and Resume workshop.  Our workshop aims to guide students through the process of creating a resume and cover letter that highlights their relevant skills and effectively tailors their experiences to meet a potential employer's needs.

  • How to determine which personal, technical, and transferable skills to highlight
  • Tips for determining employer needs

  • How to create a tailored resume and cover letter
When and where is the workshop?
