TYAPN Resume Workshop 2020 feat. TAP-Seattle Reviewers

TAP-Seattle is happy to partner with TYAPN in providing mentors for our joint resume workshop!

Description from TYAPN as follows

——————————————————-

Having trouble finding jobs or internships? Submitting tons of resumes but never getting any response? Look no further, come to TYAPN for all the help you need!

As international students, we definitely have it harder when it comes to finding jobs in America, and as the amount of international students increase over the years the difficulty only grows as well. Then comes the question: How can we overcome this? The answer is a well constructed resume. If done correctly, it will become the key that helps you grasp that dream job by outshining your competitors. With emphasis on special qualities and unique abilities, HR will be much more inclined to choose you!

How, though, to piece together the perfect resume is the critical skill, but don’t fret, as TYAPN is here to help! We have invited experts from various fields to provide specific advice for constructing your resume. Our Resume Workshop will also host speakers to share their resume tips and application experiences to smooth your path out. To be effective and efficient, we will have grouped discussions based on field of work as well as a dedicated Q&A session for any questions!
To top things off, we provide drinks and snacks during this workshop, so get ready for a good time while polishing out your new, shiny resume!

Time: Feb. 11th 5:50pm – 8:00pm
