You need a top-notch resume to get an interview! This workshop will help you create a targeted resume that will make you shine as a job applicant.
You will learn how to write an attention-grabbing HOT ZONE! We will discuss how to target your resume to job descriptions and use accomplishment statements to clearly demonstrate how you meet the required core competencies in context of the position you are applying for. You will learn the PAR (Problem or Task, Action, Result) method for creating accomplishments statements and identify strong verbs and adjectives to bring your achievements and successes to life. To assist you with your writing, we will use the Internet to research occupational profiles.
To optimize your learning: It would be helpful to have a paper or electronic version of your resume available and a way to save your documents electronically. In addition, if you have a job description for a job you wish to apply, please bring that along.
