Perfecting Your Internship ResumÉ & Cover Letter Workshop

Before gaining access to exclusive internship job postings, students must attend a mandatory Perfecting Your Internship Resumé & Cover Letter workshop.

About this workshop

This session provides internship-specific resumé and cover letter writing techniques, including:

  • showcasing your school projects and assignments as practical experience
  • clearly demonstrating your fit for the internship position and employer
  • preparing additional application documents such as an unofficial transcript

Also, receive tips and advice on how to search the internship job board effectively to maximize opportunities and get answers to industry-specific questions.

Option for students who cannot attend any of the scheduled Perfecting Your Internship Resumé & Cover Letter workshops:

Students who are not able to attend one of the scheduled Perfecting Your Internship Resumé & Cover Letter workshops may attend the Career Centre's Resumé & Cover Letter Writing workshop instead. This workshop is offered as part of the Career Centre's regular schedule. Students who choose this option must inform the internship team via email (ccintern@yorku.ca) that they have done so and provide the dates of the alternate workshop attended. Please include "Substituting workshop for Perfecting Your Internship Resumé & Cover Letter" in the subject line.
