The Importance of Skills Identification and Communication in Writing a Resume
Have you repeatedly applied to jobs that go without responses, or have you been turned down for a promotional opportunity? Maybe your resume is to blame. Most people sell themselves short when communicating their skillsets, particularly those seeking entry-level positions. This webinar discusses skills identification within your occupation, how to communicate your skillsets and apply them for employment and career advancement opportunities by showing you how to list them on your resume.
The presenter for this session is Connie Harrington, associate director of Career Development and Employer Relations at Capitol. She is a certified Job and Career Transitions and Development Coach. Harrington will address resume formats, how to dissect job postings to recognize essential skills, getting through ATS (applicant tracking system) deterrents and how to write a more successful resume.
The 60-minute webinar concludes with a moderated live question and answer period.
Capitol Technology University offers the webinar as a complimentary, informational service. We will offer a certificate of completion for this webinar.
