For those of you who joined the little webinar to get some ideas on ways yo update an old resume (typesetting/visual) and do the resume-to-job-description-mashup, here’s the deck I walked through that includes the handful of resources I showed.

Many thanks to the volunteer who provided their resume.

In a nutshell, you want to be sure to:

  • apply to the right jobs
  • customize your resume to every single job
  • use the phrasing/language in the job description
  • make sure you have a good, easy to read, modern format
  • align your LinkedIn profile – make it general enough to ‘work’ with all your resume iterations
  • ask friends and colleagues for help with LinkedIn endorsements and/or recommendations where it makes sense
  • get new skills if needed – lots of online training available

The PDF slides are below. The links in the PDF resource section should work. If you’d like to download the slides, click here.
