Free Resume Workshop 9/2

August 26, 2014

September 2, 2014
6:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.

Career Network Ministry at McLean Bible Church presents a FREE

Resume Workshop

with Pascale Haspil, vp at Lee Hecht Harrison

It’s a fact that 70% of all jobs are acquired through networking. While the importance of a resume is overrated, it is still part of the etiquette of applying for a job and thus should be well written.

In this one hour workshop we will discuss:

-Brand strategy – (i.e. How do you differentiate yourself from the competition? Who is today’s hiring manager?)

-Active verbs & alternative sentence openers – (i.e. What voice are you using to describe your skills. Strategic vs. tactical.)

-Quantifying & qualifying experience – (i.e. How do you turn bullet points into accomplishment statements.)

-Resume design & structure – (i.e. How long and how far back should you go. Chronological vs.functional.)

This session will be interactive and will focus on addressing frequently asked resume questions.

Participants are encouraged to bring their resumes for reference.
