SA&FS Resume Workshop
*Spongebob, anyone? 

SA&FS x Internship & Career Center:
SA&FS Resume Workshop

Wednesday, February 10
4:00 - 6:00pm @ 229 South Hall, UC Davis, CA

RSVP here
A resume workshop specifically for SA&FS students because jobs and internships! 
Who will be there?
 SA&FS students + Cynthia Goldberg (aka a kick ass resume master), the Program Coordinator for Agricultural and Environmental Sciences at the ICC

Will I know anyone? 
You can check to see if you know anyone here. If not knowing anyone is a concern, please know that there will be no pressure to socialize, but plenty of new friends awaiting if that is what you are looking for! 

Why should I attend?
Because (1) the internship requirement for SA&FS requires you to reach out and market yourself and (2) understanding how to best present your skill set and experiences is invaluable for networking and future jobs and careers

What can I expect? 
We will cover how best to market yourself with a SA&FS degree. This will break down to where to find jobs/internships, resume basics, SA&FS-specific skill sets and structural ideas, and workshopping real student resumes for real jobs you are interested in.

Real resumes, huh? Can I bring mine? 
YES! Please email your resume, cover letter, and/or job postings you are interested in here (to Kenna at to have them edited during the workshop. You can also just bring what you have to the workshop without sending it in prior (we will start with the materials sent in to us).

Can I attend if I don't RSVP?
Yes, please do! If you are interested at all in the workshop, it would be great if you could RSVP. RSVPing does not mean that you must attend.

What if I show up late or have to leave early? 
No worries! We understand the craziness of student schedules. Stop by for part or all of it!

This is during my pre-dinner snack time. Will there be food? 


I am super interested, but I can't make it. Will there be other workshops like this? 
We are hoping to provide another workshop like this during Spring quarter if this one is successful (is helpful to students in addressing their internship/job/resume needs). Regardless, we will be consolidating all of the material covered into a basic SA&FS Resume Manual to be available to students shortly after the workshop. 

Questions or suggestions for future workshops?
Email us!

All our best,
Shea & Kenna
