A series of free, online programs where you get to ask all your questions about your job search. We will have three programs in this series: Resumes, Interviewing and Networking.
Hosted by Marie Raperto, President, CIM Search, Blogger, The Hiring Hub
This session focused on resume building tips. Key points discussed during the Hangout included:
- Differences between a “CV” vs. “Resume” (Examples included in the presentation)
- Discussion about the changes in resume writing. Due to the influx of resumes and responses to job openings, hiring managers are inundated with resumes. This means that the savvy job applicant needs to create a very targeted, easy-to-read resume. . What should go on it, how should it look, how should you position yourself, why isn’t your resume working.
- Your resume is your AD. It needs to tell someone enough about you so they want to learn more. It’s a fine balancing act that requires focus and attention to detail on your resume.
- Your online activity makes a HUGE IMPACT on your personal brand. Your online activity–ranging from Facebook posts to a personal blog–all need to be factored into your resume. Your online activity must be well-managed. It’s part of your brand and is factored into any review for a potential job opportunity.
