"Resumes: Be Current, Be Effective, GET Hired"

  • 11:30am MAHB 104 (Moriarty Arts and Humanities Building)
  • Doug Goodrum, Founder/Executive Director of Career Resources Network (the CRN)

Without a good Resume, you may not go further than the "5-10 second glance" a future employer's busy schedule has time for. So, the Resume is merely a tool to help them RE...SUME considering you, or (unfortunately) not to. For example, it should (among many other purposes):

  • Tell employers who you are and what you can do
  • Quantify your strengths and accomplishments in a clear and concise fashion
  • Give employers reasons why they should hire you - it is your marketing brochure
  • and so much more, so

In this exciting and jam-packed 30-minute seminar, we will present the Resume What and Why.

Feel free to bring a printed copy of your Resume. Time allowing, the guest speaker might be able to spend some one-on-one with you since the Resume should be...a team effort!
