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.

    Is it necessary to target an entry level job when you are changing to a new career area after accumulating several years of experience? I don't think so despite seeing many such applicants who have concluded they need to do this. Here are a few points to consider: Your previous experience may have been a training arena that has helped you develop transferable skills way beyond entry level. You may have learned operating practices that are common to many employers. Your people skills may compensate for being a relative newbie in your new job category. You have proven your stability and worth in the world of work. Also, your maturity may even cause you to be something of a misfit in your new area. Better than suffering through entry level in these cases is to brace yourself for a more intensive and longer search to find a situation where your job assets are valued and your new career trajectory takes off from a higher level.

    Marilyn, I'm so sorry I have been having problems printing my résumé and now I'm running quite late. I hope to make it to a workshop asap in SF.

    I'm so sorry to cancel so last minute, but I am not going to be able to get out of work early enough for the workshop. Thanks!
