Webinar Description:

This webinar series is a three-part series which includes: “Preparation – The Foundation for a Successful Job Search;”  “Resumes and Cover Letters – Content & Format;” and “Interviewing – Telephone, Skype and Face to Face.” Topics covered during the webinar will be geared to residents, but will be of value to anyone seeking or planning a position change or a first position – resident or supervisor. The webinars are designed as a series, but it is possible to sign up for 1 or more sessions. 

This webinar will focus on resume content. Resume format is more a matter of preference and an art than a science. Format will discussed, an option presented and certain format considerations (e.g. “above the fold”) will be included in the discussion, as well. A template for cover letters will be shared for consideration and discussion. Time permitting, an on-line posting will be reviewed to determine how its content might influence the resume and cover letter. If you’ve be struggling with determining what the “perfect” resume is, this webinar could prove valuable and may even reduce your stress level a little.
