Webinar Session on Industry Experience and CV Writing

In recent days Sri Lanka is struggling to eradicate Covid-19 epidemic out of the community. The usual practice of the government university system is interrupted because of this issue. From IEEE Uva Wellassa University Student Branch, we put our effort to aid the undergraduates to improve their career path even though they cannot enroll with university studies. We have organized a webinar session for our university undergraduates mainly focusing on final year undergraduates on the topic “Industry experience and CV writing” on 12th May 2020. Invited resource speaker Prasanna Vaikunthavasan from 99X Technology (Pvt) Ltd hosted the session. 85 participants engaged with the session and obtained knowledge regarding what to include and exclude in a resume and the difference between a curriculum vitae and a resume. It was a great experience for all the participants.
