Resume Mastery Workshop (Bellevue, WA)
Thursday, January 31, 2013 from 4:30 PM to 9:30 PM (PST)
Bellevue, United States
Did you know:
- That three different decision makers with very different needs are going to look at your resume?
- That you have less than 7 seconds to capture a recruiter’s attention?
- Customizing your resume to the job description isn’t sufficient today?
You have one chance to make an impression, is it the right one? A pretty resume with great grammar and spelling put together by a resume writer isn’t going to get you interviews because most job descriptions don’t contain the actual needs of the employer, so how can your resume show you are the best candidate?
In this course we’ll teach you everything you need to know to impress the Applicant Tracking System, Recruiter, and the Hiring Managers.
We will discuss:
- What are the different needs for the ATS, Recruiter, and Hiring Manager
- How to describe your professional experience to position you as the best candidate
- Algorithms used by Hiring Management Systems to score your resume
- How to learn the actual needs of the employer that aren’t found on the job description
- Decisive elements of the job description and which ones you should focus on
- Best practices for sending in resumes
- What language structure can you use that will determine a higher salary offering
- Differences between consulting and hybrid resumes and which one should you be using
- Resume customization checklist to use before applying to any company
- How to create a scanable resume that will pass the 7 second test
You will benefit by:
- Learning how to customize the resume to the exact needs of the employer – not found on the job description
- Optimizing their resume based on different search algorithms today’s Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) use to sort through resumes
- Earning a high score in Hiring Management Systems (HMS) that will influence the recruiter to setup a phone screen
- Negotiating a better role and/or higher salary based on improvements to the language structure used on their resumes
- Knowing how to articulate results that will impress the hiring manager
