You hear that tailoring a resume to the job is critical. Did you know this step begins with deciphering the job ad? Use key words from the job description to show the hiring manager you have the capabilities and you’re the right candidate for the job.

Attend this session to:
• Decode job descriptions
• Translate experiences (academic, co-curricular, and work-related) in ways that will communicate your skills in the job search application process
• Craft targeted resumes and cover letters that respond to particular job applications
• Tell your personal story through documents
