YWCA: Resume Writing
Join us for the second in a Career Development Series: Resume Writing, provided by the YWCA.
Finding the right words, sculpting the most eye-catching bullet points, and using an appropriate format when creating a resume can be tricky. This workshop will first define the purpose of a resume and discuss how employers utilize them throughout the hiring process. We will then cover the most effective resume practices, common mistakes that can take perspective employees out of the running, and how to create a resume using a template.
