Last Thursday, I attended a workshop on internship and resume writing held by career services. The first part of the workshop explained how to write a good resume. It also explained what some of the key features of resume should consist of. It also stressed the point of having a cover letter in addition to the resume for any job. The cover letter is more to reflect one’s character and highlight important accomplishment that you would like to point out to the employer. The second part of the workshop was finding an internship. Most internship have found through networking. But there are also sites like LUCIE, Monstertrak and Interships where you can apply for an internship.
One of the great service provided by Lehigh is Career Service. Career Service can help you connect with employers and prepare for you job interviews. They also provide counseling for students to meet with a counselor one on one. This semester I will be using Career Service to hopefully get a internship.
