Resumes and cover letters are essential to landing that internship or job interview! (Wait, interviews?!?!)

Join AAJA Young Professionals Network (Yung AAJA) members Elaine Kong, Lian Parsons and Allen Peng via YouTube Live on Sunday, April 1 at 7:00pm ET to learn more about what makes a young journalist stand out.
