April 21, 2015 - 7:00 - 8:00 p.m. EST (Webcast)

Learn the strategies peer leaders need to stand out in the job search.

Overview

Peer leaders gain extensive skills and experience in such roles as tutors, mentors, advisors and club leaders. Yet, when it comes to articulate these skills on resumes and personal statement or through interviews, they often overlook their own leadership learning and focus on more tangible successes.  Students who can translate their leadership skills and experience onto resumes and in interviews will stand out far above other candidates and for good reason. This webcast will teach students how to distill from their peer leadership roles the specific skills and problem-solving experience they have gained. They will then learn how to write those skills and experience into resumes and cover letters.  Finally, the facilitator will how to truly shine during the interview process. This session will provide peer leaders with strategies for how to articulate the skills they have acquired and enhanced through a variety of post-graduate arenas.
