Building a Killer Resume Including Changes, Volunteer Work, and Creative Pauses
March 25, 2015
Time: 5:30-6:30 pm Registration / refreshments
Location: HBS Room Hawes 202
6:30-8:00 pm Presentation & Q&A
You have a strong track record, but it’s buried. How can a prospective employer find those golden nuggets on your resume that qualify you for employment when the relevant experience is not easily found? You’ve on-ramped, off-ramped, had a high turnover of companies, had a sick parent, took off time to volunteer for a critical initiative. You’ve been doing important work and your skills are transferable, but the right message for your new market – and today’s hiring managers --is covered up. How can you help your future find you?
Attending the HBSWA session on Wednesday, March 25, is the first step.
HBSWA Members, Guest of Members, WSA Members: $35 Non-Members: $55
Pam Lassiter, author of The New Job Security, a Wall Street Journal award winning book and principal of Lassiter Consulting, a firm that provides career transition programs and coaching to companies and individuals worldwide, will be our career guide.
As a consultant in career management for over thirty years, Lassiter works with senior level professionals who are solving problems in their current organizations or are considering career transitions. She has taught in "Charting Your Course" for HBS alumnae since its inception and is one of our most popular speakers.
We’ll focus specifically on messaging strategies for your resume and the answer to that perennial question, “What have you been doing?” with a targeted, proactive approach to how you can add value, in our session. You’ll receive a copy of The New Job Security and leave well-armed with new approaches and new relationships.
Bring 4-5 copies of your current resume and your questions. Odds are that you’ll be changing it by the time we’re done.
Is your profile picture taken with a smartphone?
Don't let others dismiss you before they even get a chance to know you.
