Course Description

Do you send out many resumes to jobs, only to never hear back again? Do you wonder why others are getting interview after interview, while you're still sitting at your computer, waiting for some good news to appear in your inbox?

This course will teach you how to write an American resume that gets you noticed by employers and invited to interviews, so you can ultimately get the job you've always wanted.

The lessons will provide you with all the information you need, as well as concrete action steps and checklists, to ensure you create the best possible resume for the U.S. job market.

Are you driven and ready to succeed? If so, this course is for you.

This course is NOT for you if you're looking for a magic solution that requires no effort. Implementing these steps will require a couple hours of work. However, if you want to start a job that pays well and makes you happy to come into the office each morning, the work you put in will be well worth it.

Our curriculum is split into three sections:

1. How to make your content irresistible - even if you're not sure what employers are looking for.

2. How to format your resume to show employers you can hit the ground running - and avoid looking like an outsider, or missing the cultural cues your readers are looking for.

3. How to beat the computers responsible for rejecting your resume - and get a real person to actually read the documents you submit.

Who this course is for:

  • This course is for people who want to put in a couple hours of work to really improve their resume -- so it passes through human and computer filters, increasing your chances of getting a job interview.
