Complete these 6 Workshops Offered through UNB Career Development and Employment Centre:

  • Job Search Strategies: 80% of jobs are not advertised. So, building some strategies for finding employment in this situation requires building knowledge and skills in finding opportunities. In this workshop you will explore how to do this, answer some of your concerns, and gain valuable tools to help you in the process.
  • Resume and Cover Letter Workshop: Learn about resume styles and what is best for your situation. Use the right kind of headers and action words to make your resume the best representation of you. You need to feel good about what you put out to the job market.  A cover letter compliments your resume and requires use of concise, effective wording, as well as proper formatting to get an employer interested in reading your resume. We help you effectively present yourself on paper.
  • Interviewing Skills and Answering Difficult Questions: Preparing ahead for the interview is a good way to make sure you do well. Practice helps! In this workshop you will learn how to approach the interview questions through discussion and example practice. Question types that will be reviewed are traditional, situational or behavioral. You will learn how to manage difficult interview questions as well.
  • Social Media:  More than ever social media has become an important means of networking and job seeking.  Learn how utilizing social media can complement traditional networking and job seeking efforts, and how you can establish professional connections while uncovering the hidden job market.   While social media can be a productive tool in job seeking and career development it is also one that must be used carefully by both job seekers and employers.  We discuss ways you can avoid common "faux pas" and maintain a professional and successful online presence.
