Refresh Your Resume
Tuesday, May 17, 5:30 - 6:30 p.m. (ET) Click here to register >>
It doesn't matter how qualified you are for a job if no recruiter sees your credentials. Organizations often rely on AI gatekeepers to pre-screen applications. But systems aren't perfect and can reject qualified candidates. Attend this webinar and learn how to get your resume past a company's applicant tracking system (ATS) and on to human eyes. In addition, you will discover how to write a results-oriented resume and cover letter that reflect your relevant experience, abilities, and accomplishments. Transform your resume into a powerful tool that will get you more interviews.
Tuesday, May 17, 6:00 - 7:00 p.m. (ET) via Zoom. Click here to register >>.
Cambridge College Librarian Jeff Cronin covers the American Psychological Association (APA) 7th edition citation style. We will begin by covering APA basics including how to format the most used sources for papers and the basics of in-text citations. We will conclude by covering resources you can use to help with APA. There will also be an opportunity for questions. If you need any additional information, please contact Jeff Cronin at Jeffrey.Cronin@cambridgecollege.edu. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
Canvas Training for Students
Beginning in the summer 2022 term, all courses will be using Canvas as the Learning Management System. Each training session will show students the Canvas course settings, notifications, inbox communications, conducting coursework such as uploading assignments, taking a quiz, participating in discussion forums, and utilizing Canvas help resources. We encourage all students to register for one of the Canvas training sessions below:
