Starr Career Development Center

The first workshop I went to was the Starr Career Development Center workshop. There, I was able to learn about the correct ways on writing a resume. With the useful and informative packet, there are instructions that tell you the do’s and don’ts when creating a resume, the important things you should include to make it stand out, the format of how a resume should look like, and general tips you should keep in mind. This workshop further explain how important a well-written resume can make or break your dream job; it stressed out the importance of correct spelling and grammar, along with poor formatting that determines your interview. Also included in the guide are sample resumes you can look at and use them as an example to see what a professional resume looks like. Professional emailing examples are also included in the packet as well, this will help you see what is considered appropriate. This workshop also explained that depending on what type of job you are looking for, the resume design can be different according to that. For example, if you are looking for an art related type of job, your resume can be a bit more creative than the regular business type of resumes. During the workshop, there were also additional resources, such as the Starr Search, that I learned about that can be used to help further complete your resume and prepare you for an interview. At the end of the workshop, there were also other additional papers that had other important information as well. This workshop allowed me to learn more information on the proper and correct ways of writing a resume. It’s very informative and beneficial for those who don’t know where to start or struggling to write a professional resume.
