Program Description

Event Details

This workshop delivers the essential tools required to launch a successful job search. The workshop will provide an in-depth review of the elements required to prepare a comprehensive and professional resume.

We’ll discuss the key elements and components of the resume - including the development of the language required for a professional profile. The profile is essential to showcase skills, talents, and abilities. The workshop will address both the profile content / composition for the target audience: Hiring Managers.
Additionally, we’ll plan to discuss past accomplishments and achievements; both academically and during your careers. Using job description keywords, participants will learn how to use past successes to craft succinct statements that highlight their core competencies and triumphs!

We’ll also review appropriate phases for the education and experience elements. Discussion topics will include other vital resume components: quantifiable results, academic highlights, community service and civic affiliations. During the workshop, an innovative cover letter format will be introduced; one that allows job seekers to easily match their qualifications and skills to the job requirements. The cover letter is a critical accompaniment to the resume and offers the reader insight as to why the applicant is suited (and is the ideal candidate) for the job.

Additionally, we’ll practice interview strategies that do not require any memorization. We’ll review typical interview questions and discuss how you will add value to the new organization. You’ll learn to interject certain statements and ask specific questions back to the Hiring Manager.

Networking experiences will be discussed, along with a path to discover how your acquaintances might become a new and valuable resource in your job search. The workshop will conclude with a review of “Thank you” notes and follow-up communications.

The results will allow participants to send a clear, concise and distinct message…that YOU are the ideal candidate to be selected for the new job!
