Will you be looking for a new job in the new year? Join a group of career changers in an immersive resume makeover clinic with fellow job seekers. We will focus on creative techniques that can power you ahead as you transition to a new job function or industry. In your future job search you will be competing with applicants who have been there, done that, and have won awards doing it. Your successful career transition will require you to do more, and do things differently.

In this workshop, you will gain insights about innovative approaches, review resume examples that follow best practices in a changing job market, and learn tips to strengthen your resume for better results. The group leader will show successful resumes that seize the reader’s attention with memorable headlines and ways to shape persona, create mystique, and project charisma.

Attendance is limited to allow individual, leader-led feedback and maximum interaction among attendees. Please bring a printed copy of your resume and a digital copy on a flash drive.
