The College of Arts and Science at the University of Saskatchewan (USask), in partnership with USask’s Student Employment and Career Centre (SECC), will host a live online session for students and alumni that focuses on creating top cover letters and building effective resumes and CVs.
This session will help students and alumni understand how to create documents that will make them stand out among other applicants when looking for a job. From how to write a cover letter, to which sections to include in a resume and the difference between a resume and a CV, students will leave the session with tools and resources to help them secure employment.
At the end of this session, participants will:
Dawne Warner (BA’92)

Dawne Warner (BA’92) has a degree in sociology from USask’s College of Arts and Science and an ontological coaching certificate from the Newfield Institute. As an employment coordinator at the SECC, her experience in human resources and entrepreneurship supports her passion for supporting and advising students and alumni as they transition in their careers.
