Hi Karen. To start, can you briefly talk about resume-writing resources on campus for students who need help in this area?
Karen: A Resume Writing Workshop is offered twice a month, one morning and one afternoon session, covering all elements of a resume and is facilitated by career staff members. All of the elements can be found at greenriver.edu/hireworks by clicking on the "Job Search Resources" tab on the right hand column of the page. You then click on each element and a drop-down menu will present the many options. The purpose of the workshop is to give you the tools to write and update your own resume. We don't write your resume for you but if you bring your resume on a USB and if time allows, we will take some time to review it.
What can a student expect when attending a resume writing workshop?
Karen: The workshop is 1 1/2 hours long, is offered twice a month and you can register for it by contacting the Welcome Center at 253-833-9111 ext 6000 or by contacting the HireWorks Center at 253-833-9111 ext 2550. The morning session is usually from 9-10:30 am and the afternoon session is from 2-3:30 pm. The locations of the sessions vary depending on room availability.
