8. "No Experience? Not True!" presentation by Lockheed Martin, Oct 11

So many students, when asked what work experience they have, answer with a shrug, “I don’t
really have any.” But by looking at it differently, it turns out that they usually have a lot more
than they ever realized -- or gave themselves credit for. If you don’t think you have anything to
offer, how will a hiring manager be able to make that leap? Come learn the three easy steps to
extracting your competencies from the context, translating that into an attention getting resume,
and crafting a perfect verbal message to “wow” your interviewer!
