Resume and Cover Letter Workshop

hl1033Join us at the Wells Fargo History Museum at 151 South Broad Street on Monday, February 22 as we kick off our Hire Learning programs for 2016! We will begin with a resume and cover letter panel discussion and workshop. Submit your questions to and we will get to as many as possible during the panel discussion!

As you attend Hire Learning events this year, we encourage you to work on building relationships and strengthening your network. At this workshop in particular, sit with a panelist who works/has worked in the type of museum you would like to work in, or with a panelist who has experience in the field you are interested in. Over the next few months, you will have the opportunity to build on these meetings through Speed Networking, Trainings, Practice Interviews, and more.


6:00 – Networking and light refreshments
6:15 – Panel Discussion – Panelists will answer questions that you submit ahead of time. (Panelists TBA the week of 2/15)
6:45 – Workshop – Bring your resume and cover letter to be reviewed by our panelists
7:45 – Wrap Up – The panel will come back together to address any questions that came up during the workshop
8:00 – Drinks at Perch Pub
