Ulmer Center Workshops You Won’t Want to Miss

by Eileen Davis, Director of Career Development

Resume Rx
Do you know how to ensure that your resume survives a 10-second scan and gets you an interview? Find out what employers are looking for and how you can highlight your best qualities on a single sheet of paper. If you’re looking for a co-op/internship or if you’re just about to graduate and need a job, invest 45 minutes of your time in this informative workshop.

Interviewing Essentials
Most interviewers know who they don’t want to hire within the first 60 seconds of an interview. But what do you do after surviving that first minute? Discover the secret to answering just about any interview question. You’ll still have to prepare for interviews, but you will be amazed at the difference this method will make on the number of offers you get! Find out how to prepare, what to say, and what not to say in this 45-minute session.

Presentations Without Panic
Nearly everyone has heard that public speaking is the number one fear of most adults. There are skills you can learn, however, that can help reduce your panic when you have to address a group. You will not be asked to make a presentation in this workshop, so relax–and come prepared to pick up tips that may help to ease your presentation jitters.

Networking for Introverts
Job-hunting by computer may be appealing if you’re an introvert, but employers agree that the Internet is the least-effective method for finding qualified applicants. Because 75% of jobs are filled through some form of personal referral, networking is an essential skill for all job-hunters. But if even the idea of networking exhausts you, come to this workshop to learn practical, low-stress ways you can build your own group of career champions.

The 21st-Century Job-Hunt
Job-hunting can seem easy, until you’re unemployed and not getting interviews. This workshop describes a variety of ways to approach the job-market – including internet job-boards, search firms and recruiters, networking, and targeted marketing. Explore job-searching activities that will uncover the right jobs for you.
