Video: No Dream Job Yet? It Could Be Your Resume
This was my respected friend and colleague, Jason Alba of JibberJobber.com in a conversation we had the other day. He started his company out of frustration with the CRM tools available (or not available) for job seekers.
But once you build a strong network and have a system to keep it alive and growing, you’ll still have to provide a powerful marketing document (aka resume) at some point in your job search.
So Jason and I are teaming up to offer a highly actionable training webinar that will get your resume loaded for bear.
Update: You can view the webinar below!
Date: Wednesday, October 10, 2012
Time: 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM MDT (note: that is MOUNTAIN TIME. Schedule this appropriately based on your own time zone)
Whether you want a straightforward approach to writing your own resume or would like to get a feel for how I work, this is the place to be.
Here are some things we’ll talk about:
The Resume Black Hole: What Happens After I Hit “Submit?” Talking about what the ATS is (software that analyses your resume, but I’ll go into more depth).
Navigating The Black Hole: How Do I Give Myself a Fighting Chance With an Electronic Screener?
Beyond the Black Hole: How Can I Optimize My Resume to Appeal to Human Decision-Makers? Sharing simple formulas for how to write your opening profile, work history, education, and extras. I’ll also include some Word templates to get you started since most people have trouble formatting their own resumes and Word’s templates are pretty bad for visual and technical reasons (i.e. ATS systems don’t read tables properly and Word templates involve many tables).
