This session will provide tips on creating a powerful resume. Some key features that will be discussed include:
- Using strong bullet points - what makes them strong and how they can be used to lead to an outstanding interview and a great job
- Writing a good summary that enhances the document (and is short enough that it likely will be read)
- The three most used formats: reverse chronological, functional, and a hybrid of the other two (which is seldom done)
- The power of including details that are not commonly included in resumes
- How to present responsibilities, accomplishments, and personal information
The program will be presented by John Wetzel and Stan Brown.
