resume-writingAre you struggling with polishing your resume after your summer internship? Are you at a loss for how to even begin drafting a cover letter?  Well, you’re in luck!

The Career Center is having our first of the year Resume & Cover Letter Workshop on Tuesday, September 22nd at 3pm. Come to second floor Crosby, Road to Utopia to learn more about how to make your resume and cover letter stand out from the pack.

For the best workshop experience, we ask you bring your current resume and cover letter (no matter how it looks!) with you.  That way, we can assist you throughout the presentation.

If you can’t join us for this workshop consider swinging by for one of Drop-In Hours, every Tuesday from 12-1pm.

Maybe your resume is good, but not great.  We can help you with that.  Maybe your cover letter is getting passed over because it rather generic instead of specific.  We can help you with that.  Maybe when you went on that interview, you didn’t feel as prepared as you wish you were.  We can help you with that, too! Oh yeah, we also have resources to help you with job searching as well from helpful links to getting familar with networking tactics.

Just come by…call… or email (careercenter@gonzaga.edu).   If you feel like you are getting shocked by the reality of your first job hunt, then come see us at the Career Center.
