These days we are all expeced to have resumes in order to apply for jobs, but that's not the only thing an employer wants to see. They usually want job seekers to complete applications either on paper or online. This workshop will cover not only the paper application process, but also the process of applying online and attaching your resume to websites. A good application can make the difference between landing in the employer's "call to interview" stack or ending up in the reject file. Along with the application and resume, you'll probably also need to write a good cover letter when you apply for each position. This workshop will cover that as well, and have you soon feeling more confident and prepared when applying for jobs.
