Writing Center Wednesday Walk-in Workshop: Résumés

Posted on 9/10/2019 10:25:47 AM

The Jones White Writing Center will offer IUP students a chance to learn the ins and outs of résumé-building on Wednesday, September 10, at 7:00 p.m. in 218 Eicher Hall.

Creating a résumé 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 résumé 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 résumés, the next Wednesday Workshop hosted by the Jones White Writing Center will focus on using a résumé to make an impression. There are several key components to crafting a résumé 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 résumé 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.
