Create a resume or rebrand your skills

The employment market may be very different from the way it was when you started your current or previous job. Join experts from Workforce Solutions in two separate workshops as they help you navigate this new environment.

Creating a Resume. You may have the skills the employer is looking for and never get to the interview if your resume does not highlight those skills. Develop a professional resume that will match your skills and experience to the job and employer you are looking for. Most employers will ask you to complete an employment application, even if you have a great resume. Learn how to complete an application for employment thoroughly, accurately, and neatly. Wednesday, November 9 from 1 to 2:30 p.m.
