Having a well written and cleanly formatted resume is paramount to getting a job. Some employers will not even consider candidates who have errors on their resumes or resumes that are just too sloppy.
Before trying to get that foot in the door with a potential employer, it is wise to have someone review and edit your resume.
Ms. Chopova will provide tips on how to craft a resume that helps sell candidates to the right audience: a picky and discerning company sifting through hundreds of resumes.
Attendees of the session will learn how to "highlight achievements to specific positions while maintaining broad marketability; translate [your] skills to new career fields; and send a message that is professional, concise and clear," according to the program description.
