About the course

In a changing economy, it will be more important than ever for job seekers to build a resume and professional online profile that will send the right message to prospective employers. In an algorithm-driven, digital age, resumes that are not carefully crafted run the risk of being rejected before ever being seen by human eyes. Understanding how job-search sites such as Indeed.com and CareerBuilder.com, and professional networking sites such as LinkedIn, can be utilized more effectively will also be crucial in connecting with employers. In this workshop, we will help you learn strategies to get your resume noticed, and more thoroughly reviewed, in the era of automation and applicant tracking systems. We will discuss how to present your job skills authentically and accurately, while also making careful use of keywords that appeal to algorithms. You will learn how to redesign your resume so that it focuses on actions and results rather than simply listing roles and responsibilities. Talking about tangible results you’ve achieved helps prospective employers learn what they really want to know about your capabilities, performance, and character. Finally, we will explore strategies for presenting your skills and professional experience in an interview setting—translating your resume into a compelling narrative that showcases your strengths and accomplishments. Students will leave the workshop with up-to-date techniques for competing in today’s job market.
