Live session: Thursday, February 25, 12 noon to 3 PM, New York time. Recording provided if you can’t attend live.
Description: In this workshop you’ll get tips and steps to develop the following:
• A resume that sells – what to include and what to avoid, what translation agencies are looking for, plus some layout tips
• A cover letter (email) that makes project managers want to open your resume and register you in their database
• Resources for where to find translation work
This is a live workshop where you can get immediate feedback and answers to all your questions.
Even if the industry still calls them resumes (or CV’s depending on where you live), we should consider our resume to be more of a professional service profile. For the opportunities freelance translators are pursuing, an appropriate resume is a one- to two-page summary of relevant skills, experience, and education. Get tips on how to make sure that your resume is concise and contains the information translation companies are looking for.
Past participants say:
I recommend this workshop! I learned a lot of hands-on tips to improve my online profiles, resumé, and cover letter to apply to agencies. Plus, Tess can review your resumé/profiles and give you feedback!
Very practical and hands-on advice. I was able to implement changes to my CV immediately and have received good feedback from clients about it.
The workshop was very practical and informative, I enjoyed the interactive elements of the session and the fact that the handouts are a particularly good resource to look back at.
Tess is very knowledgeable and gives very practical advice. The workshop covers pretty much everything about working with agencies.
