Politics and Prose at Union Market
1270 5th St NE, Washington, District of Columbia 20002
So many early (and not-so-early) professionals struggle to identify a great career path because they follow a lot of the same well-meant but not-so-great advice. By looking at participants’ resumes and by challenging participants’ thinking, this workshop aims to turn a lot of existing orthodoxy upside down and equip you with some secret techniques to help uncover career superpowers you may not even realize you have. While the class focuses on resumes, it also delves into cover letters, references, networking, career choice, and so much more. Though this session is ideal for students and emerging professionals, it is equally perfect for those further along their careers who feel stuck/are looking to make a change. The instructor will send a welcoming email, you may respond by sending your resume to shared and worked on in class.
