SUCCESS Workshop

12th December, 2019 - 9:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Develop a Résumé That Gets Results!

Is your résumé getting the attention it deserves? In 2019, your résumé needs to focus on your key skills, your industry/job function, a job description, and/or the type of company that would hire someone with your skills. This makes the résumé one of the key elements in your career transition. What purposes does it serve? How long should it be? Will your résumé get past the Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) and into human hands? During this workshop, you will revise and update your current résumé, see résumé samples, and gain specific information that will help ensure that your résumé gets results!
