This course provides students with two fundamental business components to achieve a desired job - the "foot-in-the-door" resume & the door-opening interview. The four sessions are to maximize students' talents, abilities, and achievements on paper and in dialogue. The first section ensures that each student creates a marketable resume that is tailored by their education, experience, expertise or strengths. We'll discuss the functionality and format of the resume, critique sample resumes to compare with our own, and focus on key-words (optimizing resume scans) and aesthetics (style and design). The second section equips students to successfully engage with their counterpart during an interview. We'll examine questions that assess competence, personality, and fit, optimize profiling tactics, and conduct mock one-on-one and/or panel interviews.
- Students are willing and prepared to share their work experience - struggles, triumpths and setbacks in class.
- Students are willing to let others critique their existing resume, or the ones created in class.
- Students actively complete assignments that'll improve their resume and interviewing skills/strategies.
W1 - Bring existing resume (or notes). Examine and understand the advantanges of various formats and (re)draft personal resume for marketability (general, or by industry). Explore appropriate words and phrases for usage and critique sample resumes by function, format, and industry.
W2 - Bring 2nd draft. Peer/teacher review with suggestions for improvement - analyze for objective clarity, content & coherence, and general "attractiveness." Explore the types of interview questions and understand their purpose, i.e. what your answers will reveal to the employer.
