Information Regarding IEEE Event:
IEEE Event – Resume Clinic with Shared Spectrum Company – Thursday
Please contact Michael Nguyen with questions about this event.

Shared Spectrum Company (SSC) is hosting a free resume clinic with their CEO, President, and VP to go over exactly what they're looking for in candidates and to help YOU polish your resume for future opportunities as you get closer to the end of your academic career. The video call will take place this Thursday, 10/22/2020 @ 6PM. This is a rare opportunity to get information and feedback from high-ranking professionals in the tech field and we encourage you to take some time to attend the virtual event. Moreover, this event is the perfect time to practice networking and to see if there are any positions in the company that fit your goals (ask about how you should approach internship and full-time opportunities!). If you're not interested in potential opportunities with SSC or similar fields, this is still a great chance to review your own resume so that it is ready for technical positions in your area of choice for the future.

Access the link below on Thursday to attend the event. Students should be able to use a web browser rather than download the app.
