Resume Help!
 
Last month we listened as recruiters indicated their business was growing since October yet so many applicants are using resumes that represent 95% to 99% of all resumes they see ... they are junk or unqualified for the job. 
 
If you have not had a screening interview in over 3 months your resume may be hurting you.  This is the month you need to correct this before the Summer hiring cycle begins.  10,000 people retire every day creating opportunity for employment.

Do not allow your resume to defeat you from finding your next job.
 
Part 1 is understanding:
  • the resume mechanics (yes, there is a structure, a flow and a reason behind it all)
  • the resume tells your story (but are you telling your story in the right way?)
  • the reason why things are on a resume and others are not and why the nots are often fatal
  • the psychology you can employ in creating your resume using Word
  • the unasked questions often first answered on your resume by hiring managers
 
Part 2 is practice:
  • We will have supporters and moderators from The CT Groups available for one-on-one reviews
  • You must to attend Part 1 to receive Part 2 to make the most of your limited time in Part 2
