Title: Resume Writing 101- Creating a Personal Marketing Piece

Speaker: Erica Woods ( of Apex Systems Inc. and Brandon Berlett ( of Experis

Abstract: The importance of an effective, well-written and user-friendly resume can’t be overstated. Your resume is usually the first thing a potential employer sees; it’s often the first impression of you as a candidate. Studies have shown that the average employer scans a resume for 15-30 seconds before deciding whether to move forward with a candidate. Resumes should be written to communicate your brand, skills, and interests. They should give an immediate indication of your qualifications, demonstrate your potential as a fit for the employer, and show you’re a candidate worth strong consideration.

In this session, we’ll provide advice on how to really enhance your resume and communicate your brand to help grab the attention of potential employers. Hopefully you’ll walk away with some insight on how to craft a resume that’s a major personal marketing piece.
