Rev Up Your Resume

with Rebecca Page

Your resume is the most essential marketing document for your job search. Yes, as a job seeker, you’re not a marketer and sales person. YOU are your product.

Recruiters score professionally written resumes 60% higher and agree they are 40% more organized and readable. Let’s Rev Up Your Resume, so you get those interviews.

We’ll review:

-Your Value Proposition: What makes you stand out from the pack? How to keep the hiring manager’s attention with dynamic, focused achievement statements.

-Relevant Experience: Not every job or skill applies to the new career you’re seeking.

-Design and Format: Specific structures are better than others.

-Situational Strategies: Do you have a gap between jobs? Are you switching professions? Are you just starting your career? These all require unique strategies.

This session will be interactive, so please bring your resume. Some time will be spent for 1-on-1 resume review.
