SPJ hosting resume speed-critique workshop

Posted 9-18-2012 by Barrie Hill

The UTA chapter of the Society for Professional Journalists is sponsoring a resume workshop this month.

The resume critique workshop will be specifically geared toward Communication students. Department of Communication faculty will be on hand to offer critiques and advice.

"The most common mistake -- even in the era of spellcheck -- is spelling, not only on resumes, but on cover letters as well," advises Broadcast Lecturer Lance Liguez, one of several faculty members who will assist with the workshop. "Little mistakes like that will not get you an interview."

Students attending the workshop will learn resume formatting and tips and how to put together a winning resume for internships and career positions.

The workshop will be held at 12:50 p.m. Monday, Sept. 14 in Room 327 of the Fine Arts building. Space is limited, so interested students are encouraged to RSVP by Sept. 22 to Bianca.montes@mavs.uta.edu.
