Getting that part time Job – Writing Resumes

This week Year 12 students were invited to attend a Resume Writing Workshop in preparation for finding part time, casual and full time work in the future.  The latest resume tips were shared along with the do’s and don’ts for successful resume writing.  Girls were given the challenge to begin writing their first resume draft and submitting this to the Careers Office for feedback.  We’re looking forward to proof reading some impressive resumes!
