Free workshop: Writing Resumes Recruiters Want to Read 7/30

July 23, 2014

July 30, 2014
4 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.

Beltway Job Search Partners presents a FREE workshop

Writing Resumes Recruiters Want to Read

Recruiters get thousands of resumes. Typically a recruiter spends about 3 seconds per resume.

Unless your resume is written so that it is easy for a recruiter to read, it could easily be overlooked.

This session will show you what an easy to read resume looks like to increase the likelihood of your resume getting read thoroughly by recruiters.

We will also spend some time looking at each person’s resume and giving some specific advice so that recruiters will be more likely to read your resume.

Please bring multiple copies of your resume with you.

If you bring your resume on a flash drive, we can put it on the computer and give more detailed comments.
