Looking for Continuing Education Units (CEU) for resume writing?
Here's a free training that can earn you one CEU!
How long you spend on writing a resume depends on you — but what resume writer doesn’t want to learn strategies to write better resumes even a little more quickly — without sacrificing quality? In this presentation, Bridget (Weide) Brooks, CPRW will give you tools and resources to help you reduce the amount of time it takes you to write a resume — while simultaneously improving the effectiveness of the resumes you write.
Are you ever stumped on where to start when writing a resume? Do you keep track of how long it takes you to write a resume? Would you like to shave 45 minutes, an hour or two — or more — off your writing time? Looking for ideas on how to create more effective resumes to win your clients an interview? How much more money could you make — or how many more clients could you serve — if you could write resumes even just a little bit faster than you do now — without compromising the quality of the work you produce?
The premise of this training — “Write Great Resumes Faster” — is to help resume writers make more money, with less work! Designed for new resume writers and veterans alike, this presentation will address three main areas.
- The first is the “pre-writing process,” or strategies to implement before you sit down in front of your keyboard to actually write the resume.
- The second section is on technology and the tools that will help you with the writing part — and the “getting faster” part, which has a lot to do with research and client management.
- Finally, you’ll get some solid strategies that will help you when it’s just “not working” — when you get stuck.
