About this Event
One Line Description:
Free, live virtual workshop focused on how to craft the perfect resume, using real examples from our community, plus a live Q&A with our Founder & CEO, Emily Miethner.
Your resume is your first opportunity to make a lasting impression when applying for jobs and internships, but how are you supposed to capture your personality and experience in just one – yes, one! – page?
At this event, we’ll go over what recruiters and hiring managers are looking for when it comes to resumes and cover letters.
You’ll learn to:
- Cut your resume down to one page
- Decide what experience should actually go on your resume
- Make your resume perfect for that job or that internship that you’re dying to get
- Pick powerful words that will make your bullet points pack a punch
- Get your resume noticed in a stack of hundreds
- Craft a cover letter that tells your story
This free virtual workshop will be held by none other than our fabulous and fearless leader, Emily Miethner.
The presentation will last about 45 minutes, followed by a 15 minute Q&A.

“Looking for an internship in New York while being in Florida could be seen as a daunting task with so much distance, but FindSpark has made it so easy. Connecting with companies and other interns alike has been made easily accessible to people, even when not in the same state, through their virtual workshops as well as Twitter chats.”
