There's a job fair on the 26th and we should help people make proper engineering resumes.

Examples of engineer resumes from UCR:

We can also have the second section go over making a portfolio. Most of the applications I've sent in wanted a portfolio as well.

The workshop would be simple enough to do as there would be little prep work. We should just collect resources and then be available for questions.

I think we should collect as many examples of resumes and portfolios as possible. We should also emphasize that there's no right way to do this, and really it's just marketing of yourself. We should avoid articles by people who insist that their way is the only way, or that they are correct.

Oh. I was going to send an email after class, but I see someone's already
beat me to it. Sorry about that!

All done. Went alright imo. Nobody stayed through the entire portfolio part though, which was expected.
