     This hands-on workshop is focused on early career professionals seeking to use their skills and experience in primatology for positions beyond academia. In the job application process, your application materials matter significantly. It’s critical to not only make the hiring manager's task easier when reviewing your materials, but also to make your materials stand out and get noticed. The first paragraph of your cover letter is especially important to attracting interest. A well-organized, results-oriented resume is essential to getting the interview. And in both, as well as in the interview, you will need to weave your mission, experience, and special skills through a professional story that ensures alignment with the organization’s mission and needs. For this hands-on workshop bring your resume, a cover letter, and 1-2 job postings. Following step-by-step exclusive tips, you will come away with a meticulously crafted resume, an inspiring cover letter, and a well-articulated mission statement to help you stand out while you pursue the job of your dreams.
