Discussion on importance of resumes at Job Search meeting

Published:

Hudson Job Search will present Diana Miller discussing "Is The Resume Dead?" at the July 7 meeting.

The short answer is no, resumes aren't dead, but they're evolving, as they always have. If somebody wants to succeed in today's hiring environment, it's important to make sure their resume reflects the field in which they plan to work and that they have created a social media support system to present their story to potential employers.

Regardless of the style of resume they ultimately create, the same basic rules apply: work still needs to stand out, creation needs to be the best, people still need to focus on the story they're telling and the order in which they tell the story, the employer needs to know how they are, it needs the right marketing approach and they need to demonstrate their abilities and present the information the employer is seeking in a logical and easy to understand format. The applicant needs to start planning their message: what is the goal of their resume and how will they accomplish that? Who is their audience? What are they expecting? How would they like to view the resume?

The workshop will help job applicants develop a value-based resume that gets results.

What people have said about this workshop:

"I just found a new opportunity. I did take your advise on the resume and my LinkedIn profile and they worked."

"Diana's feedback with revising my resume, I believe, got me in the door with a company that was a good match and who subsequently hired me."
