NEWS & EVENTS
Making Diversity & Inclusion Part of Our Culture
Career Thought Leaders stands with our Black colleagues against racism and will be prioritizing and deepening the conversation around diversity, bias, and how we address those topics in our work.
The CTL Board is creating a plan to continually address a wide range of diversity issues and create space for challenging, actionable conversations.
We welcome your suggestions for topics, speakers, and resources specific to these issues in the workplace.
Please send any suggestions to Marie at email@example.com or use this link to set up a time for us to chat: https://my.timetrade.com/book/B46DN
One of the first steps is to integrate these conversations into our Associate calls. We will be having a CTL Community Call on July 13 for all our program students, graduates, and CTL Associates. RSVP here.
TODAY July 2 | Jazz Up Job Search with an Infographic Resume
An infographic visually simplifies complex information. Why not help your clients simplify their resumes by using icons, graphs, and symbols?
While an infographic resume does not replace the traditional text version of the resume... yet, it is a growing trend to explore. When used while networking, an infographic resume provides a fresh and unique presentation of skills and experience.
And there are elements of infographic resumes that we can use on a traditional resume... yes, even when applying online!
