Took place on Wednesday, February 10, from 4:30 – 6:00 PM ET
In Part 1, we learned how to write a cover letter and craft a resume that will help us stand out in any candidate pool. We reviewed best practices for applying to any internship or job—from researching the company and using the job posting to our advantage, to framing our resume to fit the position! The first half of the workshop focused on best practices, followed by working one-to-one with a mentor on either writing a new, or polishing an existing cover letter or resume.

Mentees also had the opportunity to work one-to-one with a professional during this workshop to receive more personalized advice and practice interviewing.
