WORKSHOP: Creating a Powerful Resume, Part 2 – Bypassing the Competition With Position-Specific Resume Prose

Hiring managers sometimes review hundreds of resumes for each open position. The resumes that stand out and lead to interviews clearly align skills and expertise with position requirements. This workshop outlines easy-to-learn, proven strategies for tailoring position-specific resumes that will impress employers and thwart the competition. It demonstrates how to effectively interpret a position description in order to focus on the exact skills required for a job and adequately feature them in a resume. Examples from industry and other private sector positions are reviewed to demonstrate how to apply for and get the perfect job.

As a supplement to this workshop, STEM Career Services will conduct private one-on-one custom position-specific resume writing sessions with participants so that they can modify their own resumes and increase their chances of landing interviews and job offers.
