Talent Acquisition in Human Resources is offering a four-part training series -- Moving Forward in Four. The series is for current employees who would like to strengthen their candidacy for career opportunities at Purdue.

Participants will move through four sessions that are designed to build upon one another, so those who sign up should plan to take part in all four sessions. Sessions include:

Create Your Path
July 23 (W). 10-11 a.m. Mann Hall, Room 203
You work at Purdue, so you already have a great start on your path to a strong career. Now make sure your future Purdue path keeps you focused on doing something that you enjoy and excel at to make your career goals a reality.

Then use this information to begin identifying positions that move you toward your ideal job.

Resume Builder

What will get your resume and cover letter noticed? At this session, you'll learn how to build a strong resume and compose a cover letter that will highlight your work-related knowledge and experience. In addition to discussing tips and trends, we'll also bust some well-established but untrue resume myths.

The Interview
Aug. 6 (W). 10-11 a.m. Mann Hall, Room 203
How do you prepare for the interview? This session will focus on situational interviewing, plus ways to use the job posting to identify potential questions you'll be asked.

This session will help you walk into your next interview more prepared and more confident, resulting in a more positive experience.

Aug. 13 (W). 10-11:30 a.m. (note extended time). Mann Hall, Room 203
The session will give you a chance to apply the knowledge you've gained from the previous sessions.
