Conventional wisdom says that the holiday season is slow for job hunters. If you find that to be true, you can use the down-time to your advantage by upgrading your résumé skills.
This Saturday at 12 PM, the JCEC will be hosting the final Skills for Success Speaker Series workshop of the year –
Résumés have undergone changes in the past few years. Toss out the outdated and bring in the new. Show the value you will bring to an employer through a short profile of skills and achievements, by using numbers to indicate how you deliver results, and by demonstrating how your job skills match employers’ needs. Learn quick tips to create or update a resume that will appeal to employers and demonstrate the benefits of hiring you. Current trends in paper and online résumés will be discussed.
