A new EUTOPIA Career Ambassadors Workshop, how to highlight your student engagement on your CV?

The EUTOPIA Career Ambassador from CY Cergy Paris Université is inviting you to her second workshop about “Valorising your student engagement”. The goal of this workshop is to help you valorize your extra-curricular activities and your student engagement (in EUTOPIA activities for example ;)) on your CV.

Employers love people who can show their drive and motivation via engagement in other causes. This workshop will help you show it to them.

Do you want to become a volunteer? Are you always curious about new opportunities and experiences? Are you already part of an extra-academic activity of any type (all dynamic participation of students in citizenship, solidarity, sports, and cultural activities, in volunteering, political, civic, social, associations or extra-academic engagement, as well as their engagement in their universities and on their campuses.) If so, don’t miss the event!

Throughout the workshop, you will be able to take part in an interactive session. You will have the possibility to exchange with the panelists as well as learning how to start a volunteering experience and benefit from it.

The workshop will be held by an officer from the European project STEP (STudent Engagement Project) and a worker from CY Cergy Paris Université:

Maria LY from Animafac, European project manager.

Tuyet Tram DANG NGOC, from CY Cergy Paris Université, Task officer for “Pedagogic Diversity support”.

The workshop will be divided into four parts:

First: What is student engagement, and why should you do it? (be it political engagement, homecare, community service, volunteering etc.)

Second: How can you engage? We will list different actions you can take to be aware of the opportunities around you, and how you can show your commitment, studying, at work, or in your personal life.

Third: How to highlight your engagement on your CV? Where does it appear, skills, professional experience? How to write it and justify its presence.

Fourth: Q&A

When, where, and how?

On Monday 20th September at 5 p.m (CET) / 4 p.m (GMT)

The workshop will take place on Zoom.
