Where to start:

  • Using the Career Opportunities page on Lethbridge.ca or our intranet, search for open postings

    • Our preference is for your resume to be in Word

  • Ensure your resume is accurate, up to date and well organized.
  • Your resume should accurately reflect your academic achievements and accomplishments (be prepared to provide certificates/proof of your qualifications)

 

Work Experience

  • You may be fresh out of college/university or have substantial work. Either way, we want to know what skills you've acquired along the way.
  • List your work experience in chronological order – most recent job first.
