Course Description

With job applications increasingly happening online, we can't rely on fancy fonts or colored paper to make our resume stand out in a sea of applicants like people did a generation ago. The new reality is that applicant tracking software (ATS) usually makes the first cut to the applicant pool based on keywords, and the first real person to view your resume is likely only skimming it for a few seconds.

We need to know how to create resumes that can beat that system!

Content is king, and how we present it can make a huge difference in whether we get passed over or invited for an interview.

In this course, you will learn why resume content is king, and that traditional resume formats and total number of pages should be the least of your worries. You will learn how to create resume content that has a high chance of beating ATS systems and gets noticed immediately.

If you're starting from scratch, you'll get step-by-step instruction for every must-have section, and some tips on a few optional sections that might enhance your message.

If you're working from an existing resume, we'll look at how you can transform old work history duties and responsibilities into more compelling information by asking yourself one simple question.

As well, captivate your resume readers by learning and applying a key strategy that has been used for years in the newspaper and magazine industries to grab attention.

Whether you're looking for your first job, moving through mid to senior career levels, or contemplating a complete career change, the strategies in this course can help!

Who this course is for:

  • Job seekers, corporate ladder climbers, career changers, career development advisers, and anyone who wants to improve their job application results.
