Who needs a resume?

Who Needs A Resume? Are you returning to the workforce? Position been eliminated? Recent graduate or college student? Then you need an effective resume!

Anyone who is currently in job search knows the confusion and uncertainty in developing an effective resume.

Students who are in search of internship opportunities and recent college graduates face the same dilemma.

Perhaps you or someone you know is returning to the workforce and unsure how to "frame" that time period on a resume.

What is valuable and relevant for YOUR resume?  There is no "cookie-cutter" approach, but there are some rules and certainly trends that employers look for today.  Accomplishments vs. Responsibilities - what is the best approach?  A combination of both with an easy-to-read format!

As a career coach for more than a decade and a diverse background prior to that, I am truly passionate about helping others discover the right job and the right career path. 

I am presenting a FREE Resume Writing seminar at the Sayville Library, Tuesday, Jan. 29 at 7pm.

Attendees will learn a simple, methodical approach to building an effective  resume focused on the skills, knowledge and achievements relevant to the career goals.

Many internal and external recruiters use "key word searches" and "applicant tracking software" (ATS) to streamline their selection process -- learn about these recruitment techniques and how to increase the opportunity to be selected.

Should you have a one or two page resume?

How can I showcase my skills and stand out from the crowd?

How far back should my experience be detailed?  How will my lengthy experience be viewed? 

What if I have gaps in employment or short term jobs?

These questions and many more will be addressed on Tuesday evening.  I welcome you to join me at the Sayville Library for this 90 minute informational session.
