How can majoring in a language help you get the job you want when you graduate?

Abstract:

Through studying a language, you make crucial decisions about effective communication, overcome failure, and ultimately solve miscommunications. How do you prove that your experiences match the requirements employers most need? In this workshop, you will design resume content, discuss how to back that up in cover letters and personal statements, and practice face-to-face communications such as networking and answers to commonly-asked interview questions.

Dr. Darcy Lear is a career coach who trains foreign language students to highlight their language and cultures studies in job search documents and interview preparation so they stand out in the job search and workplace. She has a PhD in education and over 20 years experience teaching at the college level.
