Get Your Résumé Noticed
Tuesday, June 19, 1:30 p.m.–2:00 p.m.
Laurie Corsi, CIH
Gain insight on how to get your résumé noticed by an employer. You already know you’re competing with more applicants than ever before, so you have one chance for an employer to review your résumé and decide to give you a call. This seminar will provide an overview of the “Do’s and Don’ts” of résumé writing to ensure you get that call.  

Phone Interview Etiquette
Tuesday, June 19, 2:15 p.m.–2:45 p.m.

Phone interview etiquette is just as important as in-person interview etiquette because when it comes to getting hired, regardless of how you interview, a successful meeting will get you to the next stage of the hiring process.

While you’re actively job searching, it’s important to be prepared at a moment’s notice for a phone interview. You never know when a recruiter or a networking contact might call and ask if you have a few minutes to talk.
