Job Skills and Professional Development

Over the course of two separate sessions attendees will work on their resumes, including learning how to build and bolster them. They will learn about career fairs and job interviewing strategies. And students will learn about different career fields, how their studies now matter, and what comes next.

February will kick-off our series with a two-part Professional and Job Skills course. Job Skills Part 1 will focus on gaining experiences that are valuable to employers, creating a resume, and tips for finding part-time jobs. Job Skills Part 2 will focus on interviewing strategies including what to wear and what to bring, practice questions, and guidance on what responses employers are looking.
