Career Series: Resume Critiquing and Tweaking Workshop



  • This workshop is ideal for business-focused resumes in high tech or other fields -- business development, marketing, executive management, sales, etc.

    That all important resume... has it gotten you interviews? Sometimes a great resume won't get you an interview, but a poor resume will insure that you don't! Whether you're going back to the drawing board, or simply want to do a little tweaking, this session can help.

    JoAnne will start with some resume do's and don'ts, and then the time is yours. Bring your resume on an overhead and receive specific feedback just for you! This will be a highly interactive and hands-on workshop of "critiquing and tweaking" allowing you to learn by real example.

    This workshop is intended to be a friendly and supportive experience to lead you a step closer to your next job by creating a strong resume that sells you in the most positive light.

    This is a members only event. If you'd like to learn more about membership or would like to join, please visit our membership page.
