Career Series: Resume Tune-Up
Everyone should have an up-to-date resume as part of their professional success strategy. Bring your resume to this roll-up-your-sleeves working session and leave with great ways to refine and enhance it.
Now open to non-members!
Is your resume as effective as it could be? Does it put you in the best possible light? Many resumes simply list job history, or leave off important information, include information that should NEVER be on a resume, or worse yet, contain predictable and avoidable errors that can influence the impression you make on a prospective employer.
If you want to get better results from your resume this workshop is for you. Dust off your resume and update it to put you in the best possible light. Everyone should always have an up-to-date resume as part of their professional success strategy. If you haven't looked at your resume in over a year, or if you are currently in job transition, or you could use some tips on how to improve the response you are getting with your resume, this class is for you. Bring a copy of your resume to start with and you will leave with great ways to refine and enhance it.
In this roll-up-your-sleeves working session we'll cover:
- The purpose of a resume, and how to use it effectively in your job search.
- How to make your resume a marketing document that attracts your next job, not a job history list.
- What to include on your resume, what to leave out.
- Creative ways of dealing with challenging circumstances on your resume.
This is a highly interactive workshop, so come prepared to receive and give feedback and leave with changes to your resume that will get results.
