Have you ever found yourself applying for a great job or internship and as you start to get things organized the panic slowly starts to set in… is my résumé updated? What do I say during the interview? How do I stay organized when I am applying to multiple opportunities?

Don't let this be you! Join IUP CPDC Associate Director Kelsey Thompson for a workshop that will cover everything you need to know on how to write your résumé, how to impress prospective employers during an interview, and how to stay organized in the job search. 

The Career and Professional Development Center’s Career Ready Seminar Series aims to provide targeted programming to help IUP students gain and understand the necessary skills and competencies to be successful in life after graduation. Topics vary each semester and, in many cases, involve employer sponsors.   

Thompson, who oversees this program series, said, “I am looking forward to this next workshop and the topics we are planning to cover with students. We try to be very intentional with our topics and pick things that we know will helps students make a successful transition into the working world, after graduation. I’m confident that a lot of our IUP students could benefit from hearing this information, and I am looking forward to an informative discussion.”
