What we’re about
Resume workshops are free and all are welcome. The purpose is to inspire and energize participants by introducing insights and expertise that expand possibilities to showcase strengths, talents, and capabilities within the resume format. Attendees will leave eager to apply new ideas and with greater confidence in taking next steps toward preparing a resume that engages reviewers and leads to more interviews. The leader is an expert in preparing resumes, cover letters, and related presentations. The format is informal to allow sharing tips and reactions among people in the group. Attendees' resumes are critiqued at the workshops as time allows. Reviewing resumes as a group demonstrates ideas ranging from novel to traditional that may be adopted to strengthen participants' career change searching.

Why do you need to watch out? Quickly stated, the reason is that old news may not fit a new day. Adding your current or most recent job before earlier employments may give you the sense that you have completed the updating task. Stopping at this point, though, may undermine your chances to be a good fit to the job you now seek. A better approach is to back up and first research the key words used in current job postings as well as identify industry changes, and observe job trends. Then adjust your descriptions and bullet points in your earlier employments also. As you consider your present or most recent position, ask yourself: Did my responsibilities expand from the first day of the job? Is it time to move up a notch or two as I search for my next position? If so, you can reflect these points in your resume -- as long as they are relevant to the job postings you are submitting to.
Let's inspire and strengthen each other with our insights. The themes that drive resume effectiveness include showing your strengths, emphasizing problems you can solve, and highlighting your potential to add value. You will learn to include challenges you have met and accomplishments that have achieved goals. Attendees typically raise questions about handling work gaps and transitioning to a new industry, new level, new job function, new degree/certification, and more.
