Did you know that something as simple as a spelling error can prevent your resume from being successfully submitted to an online application system? Yikes! 

Join Sinneave team member, Sherry, in this VIRTUAL session to ensure your resume and cover letter gets through any Applicant Tracking System (ATS).

In this exploration session, attendees will participate in a short presentation that explains the top things to think about when applying online for jobs. Participants are asked to please come with a completed resume and cover letter to learn and practice successfully submitting them to an online application system. 

 

Don’t have a cover letter or resume? No problem! We have an Exploration Session on Cover Letters happening April 6 from 4 – 5 p.m. at The Ability Hub! (You can register for The Art of the Cover Letter below.)

 

Take me to The Art of the Cover Letter!

Beginning with pre-employment skills such as exploring interests, resume writing, and job searching, through to interview skills and other self-advocacy skills (e.g., seeking supports, disclosure), participants will learn about a variety of strategies to help autistic individuals be successful in the workforce.
