1L Resume Workshops Begin October 15

A successful job search begins with a strong resume, so be sure to sign up in TWEN for a 1L resume workshop. Legal resumes are different from other resumes, so even if you love your current version, it's time to revamp it.

Each workshop will be led by a CPD counselor and will consist of a small group of students. Time slots will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.  If none of the available times fit with your schedule, please email Junsen Ohno so we can find an alternative.

You can register on TWEN beginning Tuesday, October 13 at 9:00 am. If you're already registered for TWEN, you should immediately be directed to the workshop sign-up page.  If you'e not immediately directed to the sign-up page, select “Add a Course” and find “1L Resume/Cover Letter Workshop” among the list of courses available for Fall 2015. CPD has emailed all 1Ls with sign-up information and a materials packet. Use the materials provided in the packet to complete your first resume draft and bring it, along with your laptop or tablet, to the workshop.

This  workshop is your first opportunity to work directly with CPD and is required before you'll be able to schedule a one-on-one with CPD staff; we can't wait to meet all of you and begin helping you uncover your career path!
