About our workshops

These workshops are offered from September to June.

Résumé Lab

Does your résumé get results? Create a resume that catches employers' attention. This will be a working session with hands-on opportunities to improve your documents. The tutorial will be followed by a brief one-on-one help session from a career educator. If you have them, please bring printed copies of your résumé and a job posting you're interested in.

Ace Your Interviews

Are you confident going into interviews? In this interactive workshop, you'll learn interview strategies, practise responding to questions and get on-the-spot feedback. If you have one, please bring a printed copy of a job posting you're interested in.

LinkedIn Essentials (returns Feb 23, 2018)

Fourth Friday each month, 1:30–2:50 p.m. | McPherson Library 130
Are you on LinkedIn? Are you using it effectively?
