Mod 2 Week 5

Resume Review Workshop

Overview

This workshop takes place during Week 5 Homeroom.

  1. Revisit your norms as a group to understand how you’ll approach feedback with each other in this space (5 mins)
  2. Status check (10 mins)
    • What do you feel good about with your resume?
    • What questions do you still have about making your resume effective?
    • What do you want to have completed by the end of today’s working session?
  3. Spend 20 minutes updating your your ATS-ready resume draft:
    • If you received specific feedback from the Career Dev team on how to improve it, start there.
    • Consider updating or adding in new projects to your draft.
    • If your ATS version of your resume is updated and ready to re-submit for PD, you could start on a “pretty” version using some of the templates and resources here.
  4. Use the remaining 20-30 minutes for feedback. Each person gets a chance to share their resume draft, and each person should provide feedback that is specific, actionable, and kind.
