Stand Out Among the Crowd: How to Transform your Résumé for a Digital World

Sign up

Instructor Stephanie MacAller

Most people probably update their phones more often than their résumés, but in a world where business and technology are rapidly evolving, job seekers need to catch up or be left behind! During the first meeting, participants will reflect on and assess their most marketable skills and experiences while learning about the rules and components of effective résumés and other job search materials. By the end of the workshop, participants will 

• learn how to use language to market themselves and to get through Applicant Tracking Systems, 

• refresh and tailor their résumés to suit their current or future job search,

• craft a compelling cover letter that fills in resume gaps, and

• create an online presence via personal websites, LinkedIn, and/or other social media. 

While this workshop will involve participants using computers and other technology, no prior social media experience or web/computer expertise are required! The instructor will walk participants through creating and setting up profiles, résumés, and other digital materials. This workshop is designed for everyone, whether you’re currently searching for a new job or merely being proactive, and it is especially useful to people considering a career change or anyone who hasn’t been on the job market for several years.
