Develop A Winning Resume: Library Resources

Are you job seeking?  A winning resume will get the interview!

A well-written resume reflects your brand, communicates your qualifications, and may look different depending on the size of the company or the industry you are targeting. 

On September 7 at 2pm,  join the library workshop “Develop a Winning Resume”  to learn how to create an effective resume and how to customize it for a specific company or position. Learn tips on formatting, what to include, and how to get noticed when recruiters use Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) to help narrow the applicant pool.
