November 10, 2020 – Upcoming Events, Opportunities & Resources

Letter from Advisor:
If you haven’t heard yet, Cawley invested in a few excellent online tools a few months ago to assist you in your job and internship search preparation.  Be sure to check them out!  Most of them require you to register with your Georgetown email address to gain access.
Resume Worded uses AI to give you instant tailored feedback on your resume and LinkedIn profile.  This tool scores your resume and provides advice on how to improve your document, such as quantifying particular bulleted statements or eliminating repeated action verbs. In addition, upload a job posting you are applying and Resume Worded will rate your resume for this specific job and give feedback to help you beat the Applicant Tracking system. 
Big Interview helps you gain hands-on practice with mock interviews tailored to your specific industry, job, and experience level. It contains practice questions from 140+ industries and an AI tool that will provide immediate feedback on your interview, including the amount of eye contact and the use of filler words.
A few other honorable mentions to share.  To gain more industry-related information, use the guides which offers trends in the industry, jobs to consider, and networking resources. Example industry guides include energy, pharmaceuticals and biotech, and healthcare management, as well as career guides in nursing, social sciences, and chemistry.  If you are interested in working abroad, check out the country guides in Passport Careers to learn about visa rules, how to write a resume/CV, and gain networking advice on that individual country.  Passport Careers also has training seminars, such as finding a job at the UN & intergovernmental orgs, developing a global network, and many more.  Use registration key gtown987.

All the best,
