Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre and hosted by alumni UBC. Your resume lists the best schools (naturally) and your experience and skills meet the requirements of the job postings you come across. Yet despite looking good on paper, your applications don’t seem to be translating into calls and interviews. So what are you missing? How can you get into the head of the people doing the hiring? What are employers really looking for? What you need to do to make employers’ shortlists. You’ll get tips on building your soft skills, as well as personal insight from actual employers about what they look for in candidates’ resumes and cover letters. This event took place October, 21, 2014, at the Roundhouse Community Centre in Vancouver, BC.
