iOS students get hands-on resume help during Friday workshop

Every Friday, development accelerator students break away from their class schedule to hear from industry leaders or attend workshops. Today, iOS development students concluded their third week with an introduction to resumes from Gina Luna, Business Development and Partner Relations Specialist at Code Fellows.

Gina, who’s background includes hiring and copy editing, advised students on what to include (and exclude) on their resumes.

“You can be 100-percent qualified for a position, you can be the best person for the job, but if your resume isn’t crafted well, unless by a miracle, you will be overlooked.”

Part of the workshop also involved hands-on help. Gina reviewed students’ resumes and gave individual advice to those who volunteered to show and work on their resume in front of the class.

Resume Workshop

Before graduating from the 8-week course, students work with Gina for more one-on-one job-related help, from resumes, personal and technical interviews, networking, and online branding. After completing individual projects in the middle and end of their 8-week program, students (especially those who made a recent career switch) will have applicable iOS development experience and apps to add to their resume, LinkedIn profile, and GitHub account.

Throughout the course and beyond, students receive career counseling as they transition into new jobs. If you’d like more information about our full-time courses’ job-offer guarantee, visit our development accelerator page.
