What you'll learn in this career training:

Are you just starting out in the "real world"? Or do you feel stuck in a career you no longer love? Are you bored, underutilized, or suffocated at the office? It's time to make a change! In this experiential and interactive workshop, you'll learn how to utilize your professional strengths and leverage the tools that will make you stand out in today's ever-changing job market.

We'll focus on modern resume best practices in both content and format. We'll deep dive into trends in wording, design, and creating your personal narrative that best displays your transferable skills. We'll also address the do's and don'ts as well as common myths when restructuring your resume. Students will learn how to navigate the often anxiety-inducing interview process. They will gain tools and techniques to help them best prepare for job interviews. More specifically, students will walk away with an understanding of how to communicate effectively, answer challenging questions, and make their pitch during the interview setting.

This workshop would benefit career changers, recent grads, or anyone returning to the job hunt after years in the same position/field.

Takeaways
  • Write/Reword content for a current professional resume.
  • Learn how to format your resume to best show off your skills and experience.
  • Gain tools to effectively explain your skills and how they are relevant to potential employers.
  • Understand how to verbally and non-verbally communicate during an interview.
  • Obtain tools and techniques to both prepare for and follow up after the interview.
