GC: Building Your Resume: What Employers Want to See


Sep. 12, 2022, 2pm to 3pm

Office/Remote Location



Your resume is a key piece of a job application and an important aspect to make you stand out to potential employers. On average, employers look at resumes for a brief six to seven seconds, therefore it is important to be clear, concise, and tailored to the job you are applying to. A successful resume doesn’t just showcase your work, it clearly conveys that you're a good fit for the role, and most importantly is easy to read and understand. Join us for an interactive workshop and begin tailoring your resume. 

By participating in this workshop you will: 

  • Receive the basics of a well-organized resume
  • Be able to identify qualities, skills, and experience employers often look for
  • Learn how to tailor your resume to a job 
  • Learn how to avoid some basic deal-breakers and mistakes
