Description.  Did you know that employers spend less than 30 seconds initially reviewing a resume or cover letter? How can you be sure that a future employer or search committee doesn’t miss the unique skills you will bring as a graduate student to your future position? Becky Clark, Associate Director of the Career Center, has extensive experience in working with graduate students to design resumes and cover letters that catch attention, highlight candidates’ unique characteristics, and help them catch the details that make a difference.

Learning Objectives. After attending the session, participants will:

·         Identify areas for improvement for their resume and cover letters

·         Consider how to best format and design their resume and cover letter

·         Apply concepts learned at  the session to their resume and cover letters
