Upcoming Workshops

Fall 2023

For fall 2023, our workshops focus on topics like: creating government applications, landing summer internships, and using AI tools to improve your resume.

Resumes & Robots


October 9, 2023 | 5:00 p.m. - 6 p.m. PT

  • Location: Virtual
  • For almost every job you apply to, the first review of your application is usually by an Applicant Tracking System (ATS), which converts your materials to text files & then searches for matching terms employers want. Employers use these robots, but now we have our own! Learn how to leverage ChatGPT and other generative AI tools to improve your resume – and improve your odds of getting past employers’ robots.
  • This workshop is taught by Erich White, the Career Advisor for the College of Engineering, and Rachel Palmer, the Career Advisor for the College of Science.
