RESUME WRITING WORKSHOP

The Assistant Director for International Career Programs is scheduling resume writing workshops throughout the semester for small groups of students every two weeks. All students enrolled in the LL.M. program should attend one resume workshop during the semester if you are planning to find an internship or a practical training position during the academic year.

What is a resume and why do you need to draft one? In the United States if you are applying for a position as a research assistant, intern or a permanent job, you will be asked to send a resume, a short document where you will present prospective employers a brief introduction to your skills and relevant experience. A resume should be only one page, because your prospective employer or internship recruiter will only spend about 30 seconds reviewing your credentials.

For this reason, you would need to participate in a workshop where you will learn how to draft your resume. You need to sign up in advance to participate in a resume writing workshop by stopping by Room 515 or contacting OCS at (202) 274-4090. The resume workshops will last a little more than an hour and you do not need to bring anything, but your willingness to learn the techniques your counselor will teach during the meeting. Students DO NOT NEED TO BRING A RESUME TO THE WORKSHOP. All the workshops are and they will be in the Office of Career Services (Room 515) and the workshop will be an hour and 15 minutes. Here are the dates and times for the rest of the semester:

Friday, April 2, 2004 from 4:00 p.m. until 5:15 p.m. Tuesday, April 13, 2004 from 10:00 a.m. until 11:15 a.m. Wednesday, April 21, 2004 from 3:00 p.m. until 4:15 p.m.

Please contact Sandra P. Buteau, the Assistant Director for International Career Programs (sbuteau@wcl.american.edu) to get more information about new dates for resume workshops.
