A resume is good for one thing and one thing only: getting you an interview. If it’s not doing that, it’s not doing its job. The trick is, it takes the average resume reviewer about 7 seconds to look at all the hard work you poured into your resume and say “yea” or “nay”.

Understanding what should be in a good resume is just one key to getting in front of the companies you are looking to work with.

In this session, you will learn:

  1. how to build a killer resume
  2. some of the best ways to get in the door
  3. how to be a recruiters best candidate
  4. how to ace the interview

Bonus: how to get the best job for you and target the right company
