Are you interested in applying for a summer internship or submitting an application for an REU, but the application requires a resume? Are you worried that you don’t have anything impressive to list on your resume?

typewritterNot to worry – The PROGRESS team is hosting a Webinar on How to Craft an Outstanding Resume on February 28th that will answer all of your resume questions and more!

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • How to highlight your skillset (You all already have many marketable skills!)
  • The appropriate content (and language style) that you should include in your resume
  • How to leverage part-time jobs, extra-curricular activities, and classes taken to build a resume that stands out
  • How to tailor your resume or CV to the job/opportunity you are applying for
  • How to format your resume or CV
  • Tips on what to include in a resume versus a cover letter

We’ll also share examples, answer questions, and provide feedback for students that bring their resume.
