The job market is an ever-changing environment, and consequently, new trends are beginning to emerge in resume format and content. In the competitive Austin market, it is important to submit cohesive, thoughtful and clean looking resumes to set yourself apart and stand out from other applicants.

In this session, we'll focus on modern resume best practices in both content and format. We'll deep dive into trends in wording, design, and creating your personal narrative that best displays your transferable skills. We'll also address the do's and don'ts as well as common myths when restructuring your resume. Join this session if you are career changers, recent grads, or anyone returning to the job hunt after years in the same position/field.
