March 3rd First Friday Lunch Hands-on Workshop, Creating a Winning Resume
Mark Friedman, Ph.D., Industrial / Organizational Psychology
We have a special offering for our March 3rd First Friday program. Mark Friedman will conduct a hands-on workshop in which attendees can expect to complete a written resume. The previous evening, Mark will make a one-hour presentation, ‘Creating a Winning Resume’, in connection with our monthly South Texas Section meeting. On March 3rd, you can use those principles to result in a winning resume. Although attendance at the March 2nd 5:30-6:30pm presentation is not required to attend the March 3rd First Friday Lunch workshop, if possible please consider doing so.
The resume is one of the most important documents in a job search. Yet many people fail to get enough mileage from it. First and foremost, a resume is your ticket to an interview. In that sense, a resume is like a presentation to management, designed to get you in the door. Secondarily, the resume can be used as a “calling card”; a leave behind after an informational interview.
In a fast-paced presentation on March 2nd at Brady’s Landing (5:30-6:30pm), Mark Friedman will provide some key pointers about how to create a winning resume. The talk will include: resume design and format, telegraphic messages, accomplishment statements and how to make your resume powerful, yet concise.
On March 3rd at the First Friday Lunch program, Mark will conduct a 3 hour hands-on workshop where participants can expect to complete a written resume. As the March 3rd event is our monthly First Friday lunch, i.e., the South Texas Section will subsidize each attendee’s lunch by $5.
