Resumes and Cover Letters: Advice from Real Recruiters
July 17, 2014 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Dress: Business Casual
Recruiters spend, on average, about six seconds looking at a resume. An unimpressive resume and cover letter often mean the difference between landing an interview or getting left behind. Just how to write these documents is a subject not taught at school, but thankfully, you’ve got us. Join the FindSpark community for a night of can’t-miss advice in a small, intimate workshop from people who read resumes for a living. More one-on-one time with people who will help you.
You’ll come away with a fresh outlook on your job hunt, inspiration, and, as is true for all our events, new connections and friends.
