Most job seekers write their resume as a job history, but don’t know how to use it to market themselves as a product in the job search.
GUNTER, Texas (PRWEB) December 04, 2012
Career Coach Peggy McKee wants to show job seekers what a great resume looks like. On December 6, 2012 she will be presenting a Live Resume Writing Webinar, using examples of actual job seeker resumes to show what makes a killer resume—and how to change a mediocre one to a job-interview-getting one. Participation in the webinar is free. Only a first name and email is required to register. See webinar details here: http://careerconfidential.com/improve-resume-free-resume-writing-live-webinar/
The Live Resume Writing Webinar will use job seeker-submitted resumes to illustrate how to improve the various parts of a resume. Using a “show and tell” method, McKee will address key areas that hold back many job seekers—appearance, structure, formatting, objective statements, a well-written employment history, and more.
According to McKee, “Most job seekers write their resume as a job history, but don’t know how to use it to market themselves as a product in the job search. They miss out on critical ideas to present their history in a way that gets attention and interest from employers.”
Peggy McKee is the CEO of Career Confidential (http://www.CareerConfidential.com), a comprehensive online job search and interview resource offering tools, tips, and advice for the job seeker.
McKee believes that the resume is first and foremost a marketing document for the person in a job search. Its only job is to get interviews. If it doesn't get interviews, it needs to be rewritten.
“You can send your resume to all the resume writers you want, and they can make it look pretty, but if it doesn't get interviews, it doesn't matter,” says McKee. “The best person to write your resume is you. You’re the one who knows you best—your skills, your accomplishments—and you know your career field better than a resume writer. All most job seekers need is some background in what turns a resume into a marketing document.”
McKee’s goal is to let job seekers watch her talk about a variety of resumes and get familiar with the thought process involved in creating a solid resume. She believes that just by watching that process, job seekers can gain tremendous resume-writing skill. Along the way, she will introduce job seekers to vital principles of resume writing they can apply to their own documents.
The webinar will be held online December 6, 2012 from 1:00-2:30 PM, Eastern Standard Time. After registration, participants will receive confirmation emails with instructions on how to join the webinar.
