Resume Building Submission
Our resume building workshop addresses the purpose of a resume, how to effectively create a resume to highlight skills and qualifications, as well as submission processes. Participants collaborate with employment specialists and utilize a multimedia approach to create a document that is tailored to their specific employment interests. Resources available to workshop attendees include internet access at adapted computer work stations, adaptive software applications such as Dragon Speech, Ipads, Smartboard technology, telephones, fax machines, and copiers.
The program has participants engage in activities that teach formatting techniques, how to target the position in which the individual is applying for, and an analysis of sample documents to use as a guideline. The workshop is a make-and-take in which participants actively create their own resume for use as a job acquisition tool. Participants are taught to use their resume as part of the interviewing process and participate in role play of real life scenarios to practice the skill.
