Fri., March 30 -- English Workshop for International Career development: Self-assessment activities & drafting an English resumé and cover letter

2012-3-30 (Fri) 1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

This English workshop will be an intensive skills-based course focusing on self-assessment activities so that participants will be able to draft an English resumé and cover letter for fellowships, internships, or study overseas. Participants will be asked to prepare worksheets prior to the workshop and also to bring with them a draft resume. Participants come out of the workshop with notes on their resume and cover letter as well as ideas for how to introduce their strengths and get information that will prepare them for study or work overseas.

This workshop is designed for those interested in international issues and those wishing to further develop their know-how. This workshop will be run in workshop format -- including presentation, group discussion, and pair-work activities.
