What are you going to get out of this course?

There is much to learn and much to debate about best practices in writing a resume. How is one to decide which advice is worth listening to? This course is intended to be relevant across the board, no matter what job you are applying for. The curriculum is organized into four principles that assist with the mindset needed to create a powerful resume. Yes, there are many simple and concrete tips. However, the most meaningful aspect is the learning gained on how to understand the potential employer and how to show, prove, and demonstrate skills as opposed to merely telling about them. The bottom line is that this course is not intended to simply give someone a fish, but to teach them HOW to fish so they can adapt and thrive on their own.
