In Creating an Effective Resume, author Mariann Siegert provides step-by-step guidance on creating resumes that highlight accomplishments and specifically target a potential employer's needs. The course covers how to build a resume that encompasses action statements, keywords, styling, and effective content, while addressing common stumbling blocks such as handling employment gaps and career changes. Framing the resume as a vital component of a personalized marketing campaign, Mariann shows how to conduct employer research and utilize keyword optimization techniques to increase a resume's potential of being found by employers and recruiters on resume banks and job sites. Also included are tips on writing cover letters and thank-you notes. Exercise files accompany the course.
The exercise files that come with this course have been made available to all users: Monthly, Annual, and Premium members. They can be downloaded from the normal exercise files link or from the free exercise files link on the course page. I've downloaded the exercise files to my desktop. From it, I can see the folders named by chapter number: chapter 02, 03, et cetera. You won't necessarily need them to follow along, but they are there if you need them. There is also a Bonus Materials folder that contains sample cover letters, reference sheets, resumes, and a Career Management worksheet.
I hope you'll find these useful. Be sure not use the samples without making them your own, by personalizing to make them your own style. You don't want your resume to look like anyone else's but your own. Are you ready? Let's get started.
