Resume and Cover Letter Writing
First impressions matter! Cover letters and resumes are your first introduction to a potential new employer, so let’s make them count. The purpose of this workshop is to teach some simple tips and tricks that will help your applications stand out.

2:00-2:50pm
Managing Your Professional Development
Professional development includes a portfolio of resources. How do resources–online, social media-based, print, personal, and professional–factor into your professional development planning? This session provides core strategies to manage and effectively use these resources.

Out in the Workplace
Being out at work can sometimes be a daunting challenge, but it can also relieve the daily stress of hiding who you are. At this workshop, we’ll discuss some practical tools and tips on how to move forward in your current place of employment; as well as things to consider when applying for a new position.
