Ascend NY Metro held a resume workshop event for students
on Saturday, January 26, 2013 at the PwC office. Students had the
opportunity to have their resumes reviewed by a professional on
a one-on-one basis for half an hour. Professionals provided feedback
and advice to the students not only on their resumes but also potential
career paths based on the professionals' own experiences. The workshop
was also a great way for students to practice their networking skills
with the professionals.
In between reviews,there was a panel discussion about
effective resume writing. The panelists, Ying Zhou, Luwei Ding, and
Niyati Shah along with moderator Andrew Mahabir,shared their
thoughtful insights and experiences on their own resumes and work
experiences. During this discussion, students also had a chance to have
their questions answered by the panelists or other professionals.
After the resume workshop, there was a networking event at
Park Avenue Tavern where Ascend members enjoyed food and drinks.
A big THANK YOU to the professional members that
volunteered their time to provide constructive feedback to the students
as well as the Event Committee members and all volunteers who that helped put
this event together.
