Resumes & LinkedIn: Standing Out from the Crowd


Today, resumes must appeal to potential employers and be optimized for the digital world.  Chosen words, formatting, and visualization make an impact on moving to the next step and potentially being a highly sought after candidate.  During this session, we will review what a resume could look like and more importantly what it should say about you.  In addition to helping you determine what to include, we will go a step further to help you avoid pitfalls when creating this powerful representation of you.
