Virtual Job-Search Fundamentals Workshop

20th October, 2020 - 1:00 PM - 2:15 PM

Develop a Résumé with Impact!

Is your résumé attracting enough attention? Today, résumés need to include accomplishment statements as well as keywords from a job description that are specifically focused on your skills, industry experience, and job function. This makes the résumé one of the most essential elements in your career transition toolbox. What makes your résumé stand out?  How do you handle employment gaps? During this workshop, you will review résumé samples and gain specific information to help you develop a résumé that engages the reader and makes a significant impact!
