Resume Levitation: Lift-off! Rise! Go! Get More Interviews

Your resume is wholly your own, and you have many choices in its presentation. Does it make an immediate impression that is succinct and focused to your targeted opportunity? What will your reader learn about you on closer inspection? Bring your resume(s) and cover letter, too. Your resume on line and in print, can stand out in a positive, impactful way that gives you an advantage and gets more interviews. We will examine resume layout alternatives, how to claim your target job, ways to showcase your strengths, and how to win attention beyond the 3-6 second decision point when your reader decides to spend more time with your resume or move on. We'll unleash all the expertise in the room and will  demonstrate ways re-energize your resume. Handouts cover gaps in employment, transitioning to new job categories, and sorting through the dilemmas of resume writing, such as one page/two page resumes, what to include or delete, dates, and many other issues. The informal workshop focuses on the issues of participants and is intended to help attendees gain confidence in taking next steps. The leader has written hundreds of resumes across industries, job functions and experience levels.

    We were able to work through an entire resume section by section. Along the way we found opportunities to communicate the targeted job category quickly and to present the strong points of the applicant's case with greater impact. We examined ways to introduce the companies the applicant had worked for to "frame" the bullet points that followed and provide valuable context. In the bullet points we worked to be more specific and immediate in placing the candidate at the scene of her triumphs. Down the page we discussed eliminating some entries that were useful in earlier resumes but with the passage of time have become less relevant. We had enough to do to make this an absorbing workshop.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
