This course is designed to take each student through the process of understanding your goals, strengths and development areas. We will then cover how to build your self introduction, strong resume, and powerful cover letters. There will be some homework after each class (as well as in-class practice) to ensure that each student finishes the course with a resume, self intro, and at least one cover letter.
Lecture + practice in each class covering resumes, self intros, and cover letters. Students can bring an existing resume / self intro if they have it, but it's not required. We will follow this format:
- Identifying and discussing each person's goals, strengths, passions, dislikes, and development areas
- Creating your self-introduction that tells your story and is suitable for interviews or for social introductions
- Constructing a strong and well thought out resume that will help you interview well
- creating powerful cover letters that will help you get noticed by your target companies
