About the Event

Most employers require applicants to submit a resume. A well-written resume will show employers how your skills, experiences and qualifications can contribute to the workplace and meet their needs. They look for a specific set of skills that match the skills necessary to perform a particular job. A well-prepared resume shows employers you are serious about finding a job and should get them interested in calling you for a job interview. Employers receive many resumes and are usually in a hurry. They don’t spend time on resumes that are hard to read, sloppy or incomplete. The average amount of time that an employer spends skimming a resume is 10 to 15 seconds. If you think about how long that really is, you don’t have a lot of time to waste! Every second counts, so make sure you design a resume that looks great and grabs your reader’s attention. Creating a winning resume can make the difference between ending up in an employer’s “to be interviewed” pile or the “not interested” pile.
