Spinning Straw into Gold: Resumes and Cover Letters for the Inexperienced Job Seeker

Presented by Norine Dagliano, NCRW, NCOPE

This webinar was recorded on Friday, August 16, 2019.

We all love working with experienced professionals who come to us with significant details about their many positions and accomplishments and are prepared to pay us the big bucks. But even those entering the workforce for the first time (with less money to invest) need the talents and services of a professional resume writer to help them make the best impression. If you’ve been avoiding serving this population because of the challenges of “creating something from nothing,” this webinar is for you.

Webinar participants will receive 26 pages of before and after resumes and cover letters; during the presentation, Norine will explain the techniques she used to transform them and “spin straw into gold.”

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • Essential things to consider when planning the content and format strategy.
  • Tools and resources you can use to identify the client’s skills and value.
  • What to include in the resume, what to leave out, and how to write in the client’s “voice.”
  • Creative formatting techniques to capture attention and reveal the client’s “brand.”
  • How to summarize the client’s message in a clear, concise, and compelling cover letter.

Eligible for 1 CEU.

This one-hour webinar is FREE for NRWA members and $19.99 for nonmembers.
