Learn how to ace the interview, master LinkedIn connections, reconstruct your resume, and more

Work on important elements of your professional identity in the Hub’s small-group coaching workshops—from writing a resume to acing the interview.

These sessions cover a wide range of topics and take place throughout October and November.

Workshop themes, dates, and times are listed below. These are open to LSA undergrads who RSVP, as space is limited. (Click on the workshop title to see more or reserve your spot.) And, since they often take happen over lunch or dinner, there’s always free pizza or snacks.
