These workshops are offered from September to June.

Résumé Lab (returns in September)

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 (returns in September)

First and third Thursday each month, 1:30–3:20 p.m. | McPherson Library 129

LinkedIn Essentials (returns in September)
