As career services providers, coaches, and resume writers, we often wonder what a hiring manager looks for in an interview, what a recruiter wants in a resume, or what our candidates can do to earn a promotion.
On Wednesday and Thursday, April 19 and 20, hiring managers, recruiters, and internal talent development professionals will answer these questions and more!
>> Learn more about Shally Steckerl, Sourcing & Recruiting Expert, who will share his insider perspective.
A strong resume doesn't just provide your candidates something to submit with their application – it transforms how they see themselves, gives them confidence, and sets the foundation for their search.
