At Hanson College, we strive to prepare our students with the professional knowledge to be successful in their careers and also aid them in building the skills necessary to find valuable and relevant employment.
Some of these skills in finding employment include resume writing, cover letter writing, interview, networking, and follow-up letter writing skills. As a result, we offer career preparation services to students in their final semester to help develop these skills according to Canadian business norms and expectations.
At our Hanson campuses, we will be offering workshops to our students on resume writing and cover letter writing in addition to workshops on interview preparation and networking. The resume and cover letter writing workshop will focus on topics such as the general outline of a resume, information to include in a resume, resume formatting, and cover letter formatting. The interview preparation and networking workshop will focus on preparing applicants for interviews by teaching interview tips and strategies and will focus on ways to use networking to find employment.
In addition to our workshops each semester, we will also offer resume and cover letter consulting services by appointment. At these consulting sessions, after students have written a draft of their resume and cover letter, the Career Centre can offer advice on formatting and help edit the documents. To help all of Hanson’s students, instead of just those in their final semester, the HOTS account will have resources on resume and cover letter writing including resume and cover letter samples
