Monthly Challenge for April, 2022: Get job ready! Resumes, Portfolios, Cover Letters, and Elevator Pitch

It is never a bad thing to keep your job packet updated, and we're going to challenge you to do it, whether or not you're actively applying to jobs.

During this month, we'll work on creating, revising, or updating your job packet materials and that elevator pitch that might get you in the door. Each week, we'll work on a new piece, starting with the resume.

What if I need help?

You can ask a question in the #help-and-pairing VC channel, get 1:1 help during Office Hours (you can find the doc for office hours at the top of the #help-and-pairing channel.), join the VC co-working room, or ask at a coffee! Asking for help is part of the process.

And remember, we're always here to help ❤️
