Writing Your Resume: Wednesday Walk-In Workshop at the Writing Center

Posted on 11/5/2018 11:13:51 AM

The Jones White Writing Center will offer IUP students a chance to learn the ins and outs of resume-building on Wednesday, November 7, at 7:00 p.m. in 218 Eicher Hall.

Creating a resume can be a daunting task, but it does not have to be as overwhelming as it seems. When broken down to its bare essentials, writing a resume is all about following basic guidelines and providing the information that best reflects one’s qualification for the position they want to secure. 

To help students create effective resumes, the next Wednesday Workshop hosted by the Jones White Writing Center will focus on using a resume to make an impression. There are several key components to crafting a resume that stands out in a positive manner. Students will learn how to use formatting and word choice to highlight their accomplishments and ambitions in a professional fashion while still keeping the resume itself relatively simple. 

Every Wednesday Workshop is open to all IUP students and is about an hour long. Attendance vouchers will be available for students who need them.
