HOW TO WRITE A RESUME
- Basic English language is required.
In this course you learn how to format resume, what sections need to be present, what is the best way to write each section of your resume. Most importantly you learn that it will not be a human who is the most important reader of your resume, but a computer, and thus, if you want someone to look at your resume, you must write it a certain way.
Each class is very short (2-3 minutes) and has guides and examples which you can follow and have a good, solid resume by the end of the class.
