The Creating Your Futures LLC has been hard at work this semester. The residents have been working very hard in their classes,with the last few weeks studying for midterms and now the residents beginning to get ready for finals. In the Planning Your Major class, the residents got to learn how to create a resume. The instructor took them through the basics of creating a resume and then some tips to really stand out from others. Then, on November 9th, the residents got to have a local business person come in and speak to the class about interviewing. The residents all found it really helpful and are planning to use what they learned to try to find a job on or around campus.
Other than this we have had a few social events in RiverView lately and have a couple more coming up including a skateboard/longboard design competition, a ping pong competition, and our community specifically will be having a video game night in a couple weeks to celebrate the end of the semester and relax before finals get into full swing. Before we know it, it will be time to pack up and head home for winter break!
