Refresh Your Resume

It doesn't matter how qualified you are for a job if no recruiter sees your credentials. Organizations often rely on AI gatekeepers to pre-screen applications. But systems aren't perfect and can reject qualified candidates. Attend this webinar and learn how to get your resume past a company's applicant tracking system (ATS) and on to human eyes. In addition, you will discover how to write a results-oriented resume and cover letter that reflect your relevant experience, abilities, and accomplishments. Transform your resume into a powerful tool that will get you more interviews.
