Job Search Workshop: Job Search Strategy & Resume, CV, Cover Letters

This workshop series is designed for anyone who is job searching, plans to begin a job search soon, or has questions related to job searching. It is designed for current students of the iSchool at Illinois and the emphasis will be on job searches in the information sciences. Specifically focused on job searching in higher education, public or non-profit organizations, and corporate/private industry. You are encouraged to attend all three sessions but welcome to attend just one or two. The first round will be recorded and made available later on the iSchool Wiki.

In the first session of the series we will cover the importance of having an overall job search strategy, and how and why you would tailor it to your specific situation. We will discuss appropriate job boards to use for the information sciences and how to set goals and make time for your job search. In the second half we will go over application materials – cover letters, resumes and CVs. We will discuss best practices and how to effectively communicate your qualifications for a position in your materials. Time for Q & A at the end.
