OCT. 23rd – NO SCHOOL!!

 

Week 2 (Oct 16th)

1. Continue with resume building. 

Have you had someone look at your resume and give you feedback? It is important to work on your resume often and make updates to it.

Also , do you have at least 2 letters of rec, and at least 2 references? (These should ideally NOT be a family member). Why do you think this is important?

2. We’re now starting to work on SOFT SKILLS.

Why is it called SOFT skills? Why are they important? Can you think of another word/terminology to explain “soft skills”?

Watch videos 1, 2 , 3 and while watching think of the following questions: how we can improve on these scenarios? Have you experienced being in a similar situation?

Video #3. Team work

Hint – these are all qualities that will fit well into your resume. Do you have these “SOFT” skills in your resume?

Please keep sending drafts of your resume to Anders and remember there is no class next Friday. (But please keep working on your resume).
