Resume Writing Workshop 10/27/19

In Completed Projects on 11/03/2019 at 6:34 PM
Our participants from San Fernando Valley CACAYC were Trevor Trinh, Amy Chen, Alex Lu, Reina Ikeda, Yuto Ikeda, Christian Vela, Belinda Vela, Aaron Ellis. We arrived at the Monterey Park Library for the resume workshop. There was a good turnout of people from the local area, showing the preexisting interest in the workshop. The organizer was from the West San Gabriel Branch CACAYC and the main presenter/speaker was Elizabeth Wu from Panda Restaurant Group. She walked us through a very easy to follow step-by-step worksheet guide to writing some of our first resumes, going over information such as personal identification, career objectives, formatting, experience, and others. Throughout the presentation, she also gave advice on topics such as the importance of keywords and experience. She even offered several resources to land a first job, and spent some of her own time helping look over resumes. Overall, the workshop was  an excellent introduction to the working world and how people can present themselves to it.

UC College Admissions Workshop 9/22/19

In Completed Projects on 11/03/2019 at 6:24 PM
The UC college admissions workshop took place on September 22, 2019 at 2 PM. The three people, Belinda, Nick, and Arthur all met at the Monterey Park Library to listen to a presentation by Wei-Li-Sun, a college admission expert.
When we first arrived at the library, we received a packet that summarized the key points of Wei-Li-Sun’s presentation. A majority of the presentation consisted of different examples of people’s high school experiences and how to write the essays based on these experiences. However, she also gave tips on when to submit the application and the consequences of doing it incorrectly. Moreover, she pointed out what to mention in each of the prompts and to choose our passions.
While she explained the UC application process, the three of us took notes and asked many questions. After two hours, it can be said that we were enlightened about the application process.
