After finishing the movie over lunch from Revolutionary Soup, Ms. Barbara Kessler, the Director of Career and Professional Development Programs for UVA, visited the HSLP classroom to teach a short workshop on crafting resumes. We went over the necessities that every resume must have, and Ms. Kessler also taught us how to properly list activities in order of relevance.

Barbra Kessler of the University of Virginia's Career Services led us in a resume workshop. She graciously accepted our resumes and agreed to give us feedback on what we could improve.

Next, Cash Arehart regaled the group with information on how to present yourself in a public forum or in the boardroom. Cash's personality was infectious as he challenged us to stand at the front of the room for a period of 45 seconds and stare at the class.

While we ate lunch, Ms. Barbara Kessler, the director of human resources and workforce development programs at the University of Virginia, presented a resume workshop. Ms. Kessler's advice was constructive for all of us regardless of age or class year. We received input about what to include and leave off of our resumes as well as what common mistakes to avoid. Since we all have varying degrees of experience and different accomplishments, she collected our resumes to individually edit and return early next week. Sorensen activities like the resume workshop will benefit us in applications, interviews, and other career-oriented endeavors.

After Ms. Kessler's presentation, we had a class session with Dr. Quentin Kidd on "The Informed and Thoughtful Citizen" in which we went over the Constitution of Virginia and discussed different articles.
