Entering the workforce? Re-entering the workforce? Switching careers or looking for a promotion? All of these reasons and more require a great resume, but there have been a lot of changes to the industry in the past five years. Revision Resume is currently offering a group educational program where participants will learn what to include (and what to omit) on their resume, common myths and misperceptions about the job application process, and what an Applicant Tracking System is (and why it matters—a lot—for your resume).
If you are interested in participating, you can sign up through the Rush Public Library. If this program schedule doesn't work for you, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will consider setting up additional offerings.
Know someone who is seeking a new job? Have a college student that should be getting started on their resume sooner rather than later? Is a friend currently out of work? Feel free to pass the word about our educational program that will help people in each of these situations improve their resume and increase their chances of successfully achieving the job of their dreams!
