You’re invited to a morning of Speed Résumé-ting on Saturday, February 16 from 9:30am – 11:30am.
In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, we’re using a speed dating format for you to receive feedback on your résumé from your peers and experts in the field.
Here’s how it works.
You’ll sit across from someone and exchange résumés. You’ll review their résumé for one minute, and then have two minutes to write comments (both positive and constructive). When the bell rings, you’ll switch seats and repeat the process on a new résumé, until you make your way around the room.
Why just three minutes?
Unfortunately, in a competitive job market, that may be all the time you get (or less) to give a recruiter or an HR person a first impression of your skills and qualifications. And in the real world, you don’t often get feedback, so you never know why your résumé was passed over, or conversely, what stood out enough to snag you that crucial interview. This meeting gives you the opportunity to give and get that feedback, in a supportive environment. Not only will you have the chance to impart your wisdom on everyone else, but you’ll also leave with a slew of new ideas for your own résumé.
Lisa Vitale, a recruiting manager from CARA, will be available for Q&A after the speed reviews, so come prepared with questions for a professional.
Come “share the love” this February 16. We’ll have breakfast waiting. Hope to see you there!
What to bring:
- 20 copies of your resume
- A pen or pencil to make comments with
- A recruiter mindset
