How do I begin to write a "professional marketing product" (i.e. your resume) that will be seen, capture the attention of my "target audience" (i.e. Recruiter, hiring Manager, HR Rep, etc.), and communicate my skills and background effectively?  There are numerous stressors and hurdles when crafting this very important product, but a helpful first step is understanding those hurdles and identifying a strategy for overcoming!  In this virtual resume workshop, we'll discuss 5 major "resume truths" that exist today and how to address and overcome each to ensure your resume 1.) gets seen, 2.) captures attention and engages the resume reviewer, 3.) is easily digested by a non-technical audience/reviewer, 4.) communicates your impact, and 5.) aligns with a quality LinkedIn or GitHub profile, which is another very important "professional marketing material.”
