Description: So you`ve got your foot in the door with a flawless personal statement that relates your life and character like a Homeric epic. But story time is over now, and you need to speak a different kind of Greek with your Curriculum Vitae/Resume. You`ll communicate through syntax and organization rather than image and narrative, and where you say is just as important as how you say. In this workshop, we will focus on writing for your reader by privileging the information that they will find most relevant and giving it to them in a clear, orderly fashion. Come on by and we`ll condense your Aeneid into an Ad that won`t sell you short!
