Resumes: A How-To Guide

Jeff wants to work in the information technology field. Cindy dreams of being a gourmet chef. Over the course of this program, these students learn how to write functional, chronological, combination, and newsletter-style resumes using information on their skills and experience that they identify through two exercises: Personal Inventory (to capture the “what”) and Showing Your COLORS (to uncover the “how”). Ways to get a resume in front of a decision maker’s eyes are also addressed, and insightful snippets of commentary by a career counselor and an HR professional are interspersed throughout. Engaging and informative, Resumes: A How-To Guide is an excellent introduction to resume writing for students with little or no job experience. A viewable/printable instructor’s guide is available online. A Cambridge Educational Production. (35 minutes)
