Earlier this month, PSG held a workshop for job candidates to discuss resume best practices. PSG managers Kristen Coppins, Katie Chisolm and Elizabeth Siracusa offered information about resume content, formatting and presentation and discussed questions and challenges that candidates have when it comes to their resumes. The session also included one-on-one resume reviews and critiques.
The three biggest takeaways from this workshop were:
– It is ok to have multiple versions of your resume
– When reviewing resumes, employers spend 60 seconds or less deciding whether they are interested in the candidate
– Your resume MUST be visually appealing with a layout that is easy on the eye and stands out
PSG regularly holds workshops for job candidates, as part of its commitment to being a resource for job seekers and helping them find employment.
