eNotes Visits UW, Brings Free Coffee and Free Passes

eNotes-UW-intro

This weekend, our social media team here at eNotes helped sponsor TOSA’s Taiwanese Carnival at the University of Washington. We stocked our booth with five gallons of free coffee, 300+ donuts, boxes of super awesome eNotes pencils, fistfuls of eNotes passes, and a ton of Homework Help advice. We also set up a drawing for a free Kindle Fire (hey, we love free stuff!). Although Seattle’s weather competed against the carnival’s promise of music, food, and multicultural fun, we did meet and hang out with some great UW students who braved the rain. Check out pics of the event below. If you would like eNotes to bring free stuff to your school or university, leave us a comment. We’ll enter you into a contest for a year-long free pass to the site.

Resumes: The Struggle is Real

How is it that as students no one ever really teaches us to write resumes?

resume

There are so few opportunities to hone this skill as a young adult or adolescent.

I know the only reason I’ve been able to practice this skill is because my dad has always been very pro-active about equipping me with the career-oriented skills needed to be successful. Now that I’m a college student living two states away, getting his advice has become a little more tricky, so naturally I turned to the only place I knew I could get reliable and up to date information quickly, the web. With so many websites and apps available to advise people on career oriented techniques and information, it took no time at all to identify what today’s evolving economy calls for in terms of resumes.

The days of resumes with stiff, formal language and generic formatting are long gone. Future employers want to know you, not just your education and experience. Today’s resumes are all about showcasing your talents and skills and demonstrating why you’ll be advantageous to the company in question.

Here are five tips on how best to market yourself through your resume…
