This interactive session with professionals from the Career Center will help you put your student organization leadership on paper and create a dynamite resume in time for the Job Fair.

[All attendees will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win a free bowling party for his or her organization at UT Arlington's Bowling & Billiards.]
