Week 2: LinkedIn & Resume Workshop
Every student at OSU no matter their major will need a resume at least once in their life. If you’re a student of Fisher, your resume will be your best friend. Want to know what a good resume and LinkedIn profile looks like? Join us for the 2nd session of Bootcamp as we talk about what to have and what not to have in both your resume and LinkedIn. Resumes are the first thing a recruiter will see so we aim for a perfect reflection of your skillsets and experience! LinkedIn profiles are extremely important for expanding our networks, keeping in touch with past and current mentors, friends, colleagues, etc. You won’t want to miss this session!

Week 3: Expand Your Network & Professional Dress

This 3rd session of Bootcamp will take a deep dive into what it means to expand our networks and why it's a key component to fulfilling our career aspirations.
