There are different perspectives on resumes—what should be on them, what should not, how long they should be, what they should cover. The advice you get depends on whom you ask. What cannot be disputed is the importance of your resume; it is your first opportunity to stand out and let employers know that you are the person for the job.
In this Students and New Professionals Series webinar, ASPA Executive Director Bill Shields will draw on his 20 years of experience helping students craft effective resumés and guide you through the process of creating compelling ones—a resume that will introduce you to a potential employer, sell your skills to that employer and get you to the next step of the hiring process.
The webinar will cover the do’s and don’ts of crafting your professional resumé and ways to leverage it to advance your career—and allow for plenty of audience Q&A time.
