Present Yourself Like a Pro on Your Resume, LinkedIn® Profile, and in Interviews
You know how competitive the job market is and also that a great job is key to living a happy life, but you weren't taught how to job hunt in school. After investing two or three afternoons or evenings learning to master the labor market and your professional presentation skills, you'll be able to qualify yourself for positions that pay more (one participant qualified themselves for a position paying $20,000/yr. more within 3 weeks), to source opportunities so that you don't waste your valuable time, and to present yourself articulately, with confidence, and with purpose. Think of it this way--you invest $249 and a few afternoons or evenings and within weeks you get:

The Two Ways that Resumes Can Determine Your Future
One of the most important things to realize when you build your resume is this: You don't want to be everything to everybody. In other words, you don't want to claim to have a very broad range of skills that apply to many different kinds of jobs and organizations. Recruiters want to know that you have skills for the specific position they are looking to fill. This is why it is important to pick your Big Six Skills and talk about them, then continuously refer back to them throughout your resume, LinkedIn® Profile, and cover letter.
You are an iceberg. People tend to sell themselves short when they think about skills that they have. The reality is that you just have to present your life experiences in a way that helps other professionals understand how their organizations can use your perspective. If you are a young job seeker and don't have much professional experience, that is okay! For any candidate, finding relevant bullet points is about reflecting back on past experiences (from schooling, part time jobs, projects, athletics, volunteer work, hobbies, and other life experiences) and framing them in a way that makes sense for the Big Six Skills that you're presenting.
|Quiz 1||4 questions|
In this quiz, we'll reinforce your ability to strategically identify your core professional messaging strategy and the experiences you'll use in resume and other professional communication situations.
Some organizations--especially large ones--often use algorithms to process resumes. If your resume doesn't have the right buzzwords, language, or key words in the copy, then it may not even make it in front of a real human being. In order to get past the robots, use our Step By Step Guide to the A.R.P. in order to keyword optimize your resume.
