Law School 101: Cover Letter & Resume Workshop
19 April, 2016
New Moot Court (SS 232)
Law Students Association
Cover letters are meant to convey your personality, enthusiasm and professional strengths. Successful resumes are visually powerful and contain the most relevant content to showcase your skills and experience for the specific job.
The best overall applications are tailored and targeted to the specific job and employer. The ultimate success is to have the employer read your application and be immediately impressed and excited to invite you to the next step in the process.
Unfortunately, most job applications are caught in the large middle ‘Maybe’ pile. Not strong enough to move straight to ‘Yes’, but just enough quality to stay out of ‘No’. It is easy to get lost in the middle. With a few key changes, you can dramatically improve your chances to land in the ‘Yes’ category and be invited to continue in the process.
This workshop will help you:
Understand the application process and the recruiter experience
Pick up specific tips to improve your cover letters and resumes
Make the best possible on-paper impression
Come join us for a session that will help take your existing cover letters and resumes to the next level and help present the best you to future employers!
Hosted by the La Trobe Law Students' Association and the La Trobe Law School.
