GET HIRED FASTER ( WITH A POWERFUL ACTION VERB ) RESUME

1000 Rue de la Gauchetière O

Your resume is the most financially important document you will ever own. When it works, you work; and when it doesn’t, you don’t. Unfortunately, technology has revolutionized corporate recruitment, and you may not know what it takes to build a killer resume for today’s job search. In this workshop we will prepare you and walk you through secrets that form the foundation of every killer resume. When you apply for a job online, your resume isn’t typically going directly to a recruiter or hiring manager. It’s first being processed by an ATS. Whether that human recruiter ever sees your resume could depend on how well your resume is optimized for ATS algorithms. Applicant tracking systems act as an electronic gatekeeper for an employer. The ATS parses a resume's content into categories and then scans it for specific keywords to determine if the job application should be passed along to the recruiter. Its job is to essentially weed out unqualified applicants so the recruiter can devote his or her time to evaluating the candidates who are more likely to be a match for the position. In other words, the ATS is apt to toss the least-qualified candidates, rather than identify the applicants who are the best fit. Unfortunately, that means if a resume is not written and formatted with the applicant tracking system in mind, a qualified candidate can be easily passed over. other reasons why you are not getting calls for interviews could be because : you don’t really know what jobs suit their personality type​ Maybe because you are using a one size fit all resume . some job applicants simply just use one resume and send it to all job positions they set their eyes on , not bothered if it matches what the company is looking for or not. In our workshop we will teach you how to optimise your cv using the right key words that will trigger the ATS optimiser to match your cv to the job application requirements . The act of Using Powerful action verbs in your resume is another great way to highlight your achievements and success story aligning them with the job position that you are looking for . You can present data and lead meetings all day long, but does that mean you actually got your point across to an audience? Simply saying that you talked to other people doesn’t prove that you achieved your goals. Stir the interest of a hiring manager by using words that have a bit more personality than the usual suspects. That might encourage him or her to want to meet you in person. For example, instead of saying you “organized” an off-site meeting, say you “orchestrated” an off-site meeting. And instead of “leading” the meeting, perhaps you “chaired” the meeting. Using powerful action verbs in your resume increases your chances to be hired. in our workshop, you will also learn how to use a target job title that will draw the attention of the hiring manager. We will teach you how to include your performance profile in your Cv you will be taught how to use the Elevator pitch which is the ultimate key in branding and selling your strengths to the company hiring . We will teach you how to write a branding profile which will tell employers how you can help them solve their problem. A resume focused on a specific target job, with the customer’s needs in mind and built on these secrets, will get you more job interviews.

START-UP ENTREPRENEURSHIP WORKSHOP

Needs a location

Being your own boss, calling all the shots, hustling to hit your goals -- for many people, entrepreneurship is the ultimate career goal. But as awesome as running your own business sounds, it's also incredibly difficult. How difficult? 75% of startups fail. One of the most common (and deadly) mistakes in entrepreneurship is creating a solution before identifying the problem. You might think you have the next big idea, but have you really done the research to see if it could be successful? Is there a need in the marketplace? Is the space full of slow-moving companies unwilling to change? Then maybe you have an opportunity. If not, you might be wasting money and time. If you really want to obtain success, the first thing you need to do is find the problem to solve. The problem serves as the foundation for your company. It can be very tempting to jump on the next hot idea you have, but so many people fail with fly-by-night operations that have no mission or framework. During our workshop, our experienced business consultants and Coaches will educate you on how to : - Identify a profitable startup idea. - Validate your startup idea. - How to find your customers - Find a co-founder. - How to get funding to start a business. - Incorporate your business. - Create a Road map for your business - and Teach you how to write a business and marketing plan for your business.
