Participants working on resumés.
Ms. Jennifer Grant presented the workshop which included job and college resumé details. “I learned that a resumé is a professional summary of your background and qualifications,” said Abria Warren. The workshop discussed ways that resumés are used, such as seeking employment and applying for college and scholarships. It was emphasized how important it is to document volunteer service, clubs and organizations, job related information, and other things that will exhibit your individual ability and competence.
Panel (l-r): Josh Haskins, Shanesia Rumph, and Jarien Williams
Terri Ricks, TRiO Student Support Services Coordinator, commented, “The effort you put into the class determines what you will get out of it.”
After the discussion, participants were inspired to focus on time management to ensure their progress in ALEKS as well as in other classes. They plan to use a student planner presented to them by TRiO Student Support Services.
