February 2016 Resume Workshop

This past Saturday, February 6 2016, the Metagenes Alumni Association held the second annual Resume Workshop for active brothers.  We reviewed resumes, provided edits and suggestions, and helped brothers prepare for life outside Cowgill.  Special thanks to Chris Jones for conceiving of and organizing the workshop, and to Michele LeTourneur, Hunter Bristow, and Phil Buckberg for conducting reviews.  Thanks also to the chapter for securing Cowgill 300 and for arriving with some very impressive resumes as well as with coffee and donuts!
