Workshop Name: “Help! I Have to Prepare a Resume!”
Preparing your own resume can be a daunting task – it is difficult to highlight one’s life in two pages and grab attention over the other resumes in the pile! This workshop helps people organize and highlight their strengths/qualifications in a way that fulfills resume standards and meets the job qualifications. Participants are encouraged to bring a job ad of interest, past resumes, certificate, past performance appraisals and documentation from client recognition and reference letters.
| Building the Foundation
Using the metaphor of constructing a building, participants prepare their own resume foundation by gathering and mixing the highlights from their work and personal life experience. Participants look at who they are, their knowledge and skills and what accomplishments they have achieved.
