NMU Career Services will be holding a résumé workshop for students on Monday, Sept. 17 at 4 p.m. in Room 2303 Hedgcock.

The workshop will cover résumé writing techniques, common mistakes to avoid, how to create an effective résumé and information about the online résumé system NMU provides for employers to search and view student résumés.

“We have two job fairs coming up and students should have their résumé ready if they plan on attending,” said Steve LaFond, assistant director of Career Services.

The two jobs fairs being held this fall are the Construction Management and Technology Career Fair on Thursday, Sept. 20 and the Fall Job Fair on Wednesday, Oct. 10. The résumé workshop will help students prepare for the upcoming job fairs.

Three other résumé workshops will be held during the fall semester on Monday, Sept. 27, Tuesday, Oct. 25 and Thursday, Nov. 8. Interview and job search workshops will also be held throughout the semester.
