Communicating Your Professional Skills to Employers

Description: To be a competitive applicant for a job or internship, you must master a two-step process: 1) Identifying your technical and transferable skills, and 2) Articulating those skills to others. In this workshop we will go over the fundamentals of how to identify both your technical and transferable professional skills and how to convey them through three primary forms of professional communication: resumes, cover letters, and interviews. After this workshop you will have both a stronger sense of your skills and how to effectively communicate them in professional environments.
