Job Readiness Resume Clinic Will Be Held at Central Library on September 9
Your resume may be the most important single document you have in determining success in your professional life. Although your resume does not insure that you will be hired for a job, the quality of the resume will have a major effect on whether or not you land an interview for a job. A strong resume leads to more interviews, and more interviews will eventually take you to the job that best suits your interests and needs. Conversely, a flawed resume can lead to you being ignored, rejected, and ultimately kept from getting the job of your dreams.
But knowing the importance of a good resume is one thing, actually developing and creating one is quite another. Unfortunately, as the saying goes, a resume does not write itself. If you think you could benefit from having some assistance in getting your resume together, then plan on attending the Job Readiness Resume Clinic being held at the Central Library on Friday, September 9, 2016. This free event is brought to you by the New Rising Star Community Support Corporation, a local nonprofit organization dedicated to serving the community by providing programs aimed at promoting education, workforce development, housing opportunities, senior citizen care, and healthy lifestyles.
Representatives from New Rising Star will be on hand at the clinic to provide one-on-one advice on crafting both the content and format of your resume. The goal will be for all attendees to walk away from the clinic with an actual completed resume in hand.
