SUCCESS Workshop

13th February, 2020 - 9:30 AM - 12:00 PM

Customize Your Résumé to Stand Out From the Crowd!

In today’s world of job search, recruiters and hiring managers spend approximately 15 seconds reviewing your résumé, and online applications are filtered by Applicant Tracking Systems. Tailoring your résumé to each job opportunity is an effective way to quickly demonstrate that you’re an excellent match for a specific job, which can result in more responses to your applications. Bring your current résumé and a job description to this workshop, and begin the customizing process to help you land the position you want.
