The Membership Committee and the New Member Round Table are joining forces to pilot a new program for OLA members - Resume & Cover Letter Review!
Volunteer reviewers will evaluate the applicant’s resume and representative cover letter and provide advice on these documents. In addition, the reviewer can assess any possible experiences or skills that might the applicant more marketable for a desired position.
For the winter quarter, participating is entirely virtual - you can use email, phone, GoToMeeting, Skype, Hangouts, or whatever works for you! Prefer to do this sort of thing face-to-face? We’ll be offering that option at the OLA Conference this Spring!
