On July 24, 2017, DDC Infrastructure Engineers in Charge Thomas Leung and Cristian Schwartz led a resume and cover letter workshop for DDC high school interns. Mr. Leung reviewed the resumes of all twenty-eight interns, and provided them with valuable feedback on how to improve their resumes.
Mr. Leung and Mr. Schwartz spoke about the purpose of a resume and explained the various types of resumes one can have. They emphasized that a resume should follow a general format consisting of: a heading, objective, summary of qualifications, education, and experience.
Additionally, Mr. Leung and Mr. Schwartz discussed the purpose of a cover letter, and gave the interns tips on what to include in their cover letters for various purposes. One of the pivotal suggestions Mr. Leung shared with the interns was “to show your skills by giving examples, instead of just simply stating what they are”.
