This year’s career fair
Career Connections Job Fair, February 11, 2013
A good education is only the first step in getting a job. The next is making sure your resume will get you an interview. Your interview skills will be the final stepping stone to getting the job offer you want. The workshops we offer are done before the on-campus job fair to help you maximize your chances of getting a job at the fair.
Building a resume that will get noticed takes time and attention to detail, but it’s not complicated. Each year CMU invites a certified HR professional to teach you how to write a resume and ensure it will get noticed. We’ll cover topics as simple as what information to include, formatting, and common pitfalls.
Resume Writing, January 31, 2013
Individual resume critiques are also available through the Student Employment Centre throughout the year. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment.
A good interview is more than just talking about yourself, an interview is about explaining to the person who’s hiring that you are the person he or she needs to help get the job done. We’ll give you tools to formulate the answers to some of the hard interview questions.
