The grand irony of resume writing is that everyone is told they must stand out and be different, but this conventional wisdom leads to resumes that look very much the same. The pressure that comes with writing and applying for jobs can unleash thoughts of self-doubt. Cue the imposter syndrome! You might find yourself questioning whether your resume is good enough to even apply. (Hot tip: You should apply.) Stop that doubt in its tracks. Everyone has a bank of experiences to draw from. It all comes down to framing and how you tell the story of you.

In this session we will help you uncover those experiences that showcase your potential to prospective employers.

Getting your first job might seem like the ultimate goal, but it’s only the first step in a long journey of influence and achievement. Once you’ve taken that first step, it’s vital you make the next moves count. By positioning yourself early on as a willing learner, proactively offering help to others and keeping your head cool in moments of chaos, you can secure a seat at the boardroom table and have senior leaders depend on your counsel.
