This workshop will discuss creating and writing a resume and cover letter. Topics to be included: What is a resume? Cover letter? What information should be included? What should not be included? As well as the various types of resumes and cover letters.

The workshops and job fairs are FREE and open to the general public. To attend any workshops, all interested students and community members MUST register in advance by calling the Student Activities office at 585-343-0055 x6261.
