Items we'll be discussing include:
* Time management skills
* Preparing for the interview
* Email etiquette
* Best resume format for your situation
* Writing a great cover letter
Please RSVP at JWorks Miami - RSVP is required! The workshop will begin promptly at 10:30am, please arrive a few minutes prior and dress to impress, business casual is recommended.
