Drop in for Resume/Cover Letter Help Session

Grand Valley State University’s bi-yearly Career Fairs can be a great opportunity for students looking for entry-level positions, drawing in over 230 national and regional employers offering thousands of jobs and internships. One key to a successful application is a stellar resume, but writing or updating one can be a difficult process. If you feel under-prepared for the Career Fair, or just want resume tips for other employment opportunities, then consider heading over to the Seidman College of Business on Tuesday, Feb. 11 for their Resume/Cover Letter Drop-In Help Session.

The workshop, which will last from 6-7:30 p.m. in Section A of The Forum (1800), offers guidance on anything and everything that goes into writing a resume and cover letter. The Career Fair itself will take place Wednesday, Feb. 26 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the DeVos Place Convention Center.

Celebrate “Galentine’s Day” with CAB

For people in romantic relationships, Valentine’s Day can be a meaningful celebration of love and commitment. For people without romantic relationships, Valentine’s Day can be less of a holiday and more of an annoying precursor to the real reason to celebrate: sales on unsold chocolate. Those in either camp can enjoy the latest event planned by Grand Valley’s Campus Activities Board, a “Galentine’s Day Comedy Night” featuring stand-up comedian Jessimae Peluso.

Everyone (not just gals) are welcome to attend the event, which starts at 7 p.m. on Valentine’s Day eve, Thursday Feb. 13, a date established by the iconic television show “Parks and Recreation.” Those with questions about the event can contact the Campus Activities Board at [email protected]
