On Wednesday, September 30, the RCSA Professional Development (PD) Committee held its first event of the school year. The Networking & Resume Workshop had a great turnout, and in fact, the room where the workshop was held was packed, but the committee members were able to keep the event running smoothly. After Jen and Krupa gave concise pointers on networking, the event took a savory turn as the participants, mostly freshmen, practiced giving elevator pitches to the PD committee members in hopes of winning the whopping prize of one delicious donut. Jen and Krupa then gave tips on resumes to the audience before the participants split into small groups for more personalized advising on their resumes. The participating committee members, all of them freshmen, admirably helped their peers on the improvements that they could make to their resumes and were able to give lots of great advice on resumes thanks to the invaluable guidance of and training from Jen and Krupa. The event came to a close with the participants leaving with satisfied sweet teeth and brighter futures, overall a great success.
