This interactive, full-day workshop is designed in two segments: Resume Development and Practicing your Interview Skills.  Through various learning phases in the first segment, participants will learn and apply the elements of  creating a positive and powerful resume.  Participants are encouraged to bring their resume to the workshop (no matter at what level of completion).

In the second segment, participants will learn how to better prepare for an interview, engage in conversation, explain their successes, ask question and conduct effective follow-up.
