Next Week's Must Do Training!

Posted By GAIN STAFF, Friday, June 24, 2011
It's been great getting so many resumes from GAIN members across the country the last few weeks. We're hoping to add to the list of places we're going to and get to as many cities as possible in the next few months to collect even more resumes from all of you that are interested in working on a campaign!

But before you drop your resume off with us, or even after you do, you should make sure it's in the best shape it can be.

Sign up for Tuesday's Resume & Job Search workshop!

We'll have a ton of great advice on how to do a political resume, how to write a cover letter that sticks out and where and when you'll find the jobs this cycle.

Tuesday's workshop is in person and via webinar - and we record it so you can watch it at any time that works for you! This is a must attend for anyone who's giving out the resume for a job in politics. We have just two more in person slots left - sign up today!
