Join Sharon Graham and Wayne Pagani at CANNEXUS18

Sunday, January 21, 2018
Pre-Conference Workshop– Half Day
1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Today’s résumés are strategic. They address each client’s unique value proposition, barriers and obstacles. A lot has changed in résumé writing. You can’t just use templates anymore. If you haven’t attended any résumé training in a while, then you need to get up-to-speed. We’ll address a range of elimination factors to ensure that your client’s résumé meets today’s industry standards.

We’ll cover strategies including:

  • Future-focused wording
  • Getting résumés through Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS)
  • Current résumé formatting and design techniques

As part of this dynamic workshop, gain practical experience through examples and application. Boost your confidence and competency in résumé writing mechanics, and help your clients produce strategic résumés for our real-world.
