"From Peer Leader to Professional: Resumes, Cover Letters and Interviews"

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

 

Who Should Attend?

  • Professionals who coordinate undergraduate peer mentoring programs and are looking to expand their training skills by observing a model lesson and activities

  • Undergraduate college peer leaders in such programs as peer mentoring, student organizations, resident advising, peer education, tutoring, supplementary instruction, cultural ambassador, peer counseling/advising

Overview

Peer leaders gain extensive skills and experience in such roles as tutors, mentors, advisors and club leaders. Yet, when it comes to articulating these skills on resumes and personal statement or through interviews, they often overlook their leadership training 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 session will provide peer leaders with strategies for how to articulate the skills they have acquired and enhanced as they begin applying to jobs and/or graduate school programs. This webinar will teach students how to:

  • Distill from their peer leadership roles the specific skills and problem-solving experience they have gained.

  • Learn how to write those skills and experience into resumes and cover letters.

  • Explore how to truly shine during the interview process.
