Career Program Overview
Prior to your first session, you will receive three short, easy to complete assignments, which will form the foundation of your resume. These exercises are designed to spark ideas and help you come prepared for Session One.
As well as the assignments, you will be sent all the course materials for the first session of the job seeking program to read in advance.
Session One : Resume
Once you and your coach have reviewed your assignments, work can begin on building your resume. The three major takeaways from this session will be:

By the end of this session you will also have enough information to take home and finesse what you have started. We will refine your resume as we go through the program to ensure that it meets your specific needs. There are different types of resumes for various situations.
We will email you all the relevant materials for interview skills before Session Two for you to prepare your answers in advance.
