Continuing our partnership with the New York Foundation of the Arts, we are offering one-on-one sessions with NYFA consultants to review resumes and cover letters, discuss job and internship searching strategies, and get career advice.

This workshop is recommended in particular if you haven’t updated your resume recently or are looking to tweak it for post graduation. Sessions can be geared both towards those who are looking for internships this summer and those who are looking for jobs.
