11:00 AM - 3:00 PM The Mirror Revealed: Stories Told

We are made of our stories.

Through their work, the six artists in this Suffolk University Gallery exhibit answer such questions as:

  • Why do we need stories as a species?
  • How do these stories in the form of myths, fairytales, and folktales reflect on our current cultural conditions, as they have for centuries?Why do these archetypes continue to resonate?
  • How do similar narratives cross cultures?
  • How do we tell these stories to ourselves?
  • How are our real lives and stories mingled with our online presences and relationships?

Participating artists:

Catriona Baker
Andrea Dezso
Anne Eder
Dan Estabrook
Cig Harvey
Terrasa Ulm

CAREER COMPETENCY WORKSHOP 2: RESUMES, CVs, AND COVER LETTERS
Thursday, October 4, 2018
Somerset, Rm. 114
12:15-1:30pm

Employers often spend only 10 seconds scanning your documents, so it must work hard to quickly communicate your skills and value. 

Think of them as a combined marketing tool that shows that your product (you) meets the needs of your potential customer (employer). 

However, these documents must not only be an accurate representation of you as the candidate, they must also tell a story.

This workshop will go beyond the fundamentals and teach you the best practices to have your documents stand out from the crowd.

Key elements to be covered include:
Understanding market expectations and best practices for modern professional marketing documents

Using innovative technologies and tools to build and improve best-in-class documents

Tips and techniques for standing out

This event is limited to 40 students so register today!

We look forward to seeing you there!
