What you'll learn in this resume training:

A strategically targeted resume is your most important weapon when searching for a job. This document is often the first impression that you will make with an employer. On average, employers initially look at resumes for 10–20 seconds, so you've got to knock 'em out with a great document. Students will leave this workshop knowing just how to do that.

LinkedIn is the world’s professional social network and a vital resource to find business opportunities and form strategic alliances. We will explore LinkedIn’s unique feature-set and delve deep into the tools and techniques that will help you master LinkedIn. We will also walk through real examples of successful LinkedIn user profiles and learn the techniques to achieve an all-star profile.

Takeaways
  • Strategies to format your resume for easy reading
  • Tips to describe your experience so you showcase your accomplishments
  • How to target to a specific industry/position even if you don't have previous experience
  • How to optimize your LinkedIn profile for search engines
  • Striking the balance between professional and personal
  • The unwritten rules of LinkedIn etiquette
Preparation
  • Laptop
  • A draft resume
  • A LinkedIn profile
