Ottawa – 2019-10-22 – Legal Cover Letter and Resume Writing Workshop
October 22 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT
Start Proud Ottawa is proud to partner with Borden Ladner Gervais LLP for a Legal Cover Letter and Resume Writing Workshop!
The workshop will provide guidance for LGBTQ2+ students in developing your application package for the upcoming 2L and articling recruits. Knowing how to match your skills and experiences to various employers is key securing a position.
The evening will start with a networking reception with BLG lawyers and professionals. Danielle Laflamme, BLG Ottawa’s Manager of Professional Recruiting, will then lead a workshop that will discuss crafting cover letters and resumes, what firms look for in potential candidates, and provide advice about the Ottawa recruits and how to navigate the process as a queer person.
Please note, this event is not focused solely on applying to big law or BLG. Its purpose is to provide LGBTQ2+ students with support in preparation for interviews and the Ottawa recruits generally. If you’re interested in working in Ottawa, then this workshop is for you!
Registration priority will be given to LGBTQ2+ identifying persons in 2L and 3L.
To get the most from the workshop, we highly recommend you bring a draft of your resume and cover letter. Laptops are also welcome.
