A unique evening workshop that combined two important components of the job search: head shots and resume writing.
Photographer Melissa Gallagher came and set up a professional photo shoot for women looking to have an updated head shot.
Lisa Toby, Director of Career Services, Simmons School of Management taught an outstanding workshop on “Job Search Strategies: Tools and Protocols” that pointed out the current ways that employers are looking at resumes.
Lisa came prepared with research she had done with many current health care providers, asking them about what they are seeking in applicants, and what kinds of resumes are getting more attention. She reminded everyone that resumes get a very quick look and it’s important to have your resume formatted in the best possible way.
The bottom line is that employers are seeking results-oriented descriptions and metrics on resumes, as opposed to highlighting soft skills.
This Forum provided the participants a clear understanding of the broader benefits of engaging in networking opportunities and provided tips and techniques for energizing networking efforts.
