SLIS Instructor, Kiersty Cox, led twenty-one graduate students in an informative discussion on job searching skills and resume writing. She explained that many businesses and organizations hire librarians, but call them other things, so students may need to look outside the traditional library for potential job opportunities. She discussed the writing of a good resume, the use of active verbs, and how to use power terms to sell one’s skills. Cox talked about how the organization of the resume is very important, as well as how the cover letter complements the resume. Finally, Cox shared insights she has personally acquired from years of job hunting and hiring.
