Check out the resume workshops ITM sponsored last term.

Creating Employment for Yourself in a Tough Economy: Proactive strategies, tools, and tactics
If you confine your career strategy to jobs that are posted, you’re already behind the curve, together with most other job seekers—because you’re all chasing the same jobs. Learn to get hired before a job is advertised. Learn tools and tactics that will help you to create employment and construct a career—not just keep applying for job after job after job.

We are offering a series of 3 seminars outlining this proactive approach. Our instructor, Gabe Heilig, has been a personnel recruiter, manager of the downtown Washington, DC office of a national resume company, and owner of his own career services firm. In 1993, he won a nationwide RFP to open the only commercial resume service ever granted a lease to do business in the Pentagon. He has coached and written resumes for more than 5,000 professionals—from janitors to admirals, for CIA spies, the Director of White House Cyber Security, and the most recent Secretary of the Army.

Session 1: The Proactive Resume: What it is and how to write one
What makes a resume effective, or ineffective? We will examine this, using resumes attendees have submitted as well as “before and after” examples of resumes the instructor has written for his professional clients. He will provide a partially written, pre-formatted template that you can use to rewrite your resume, and we will review some of these rewritten resumes in Session #3.

Session 2: Creating employment: Niches, nodes, methods, probes, traps, moves, metaphors, paradigms, frames
Learn to think your way to the career you want. Whether the kind of job you want is advertised, or not, there are ways to create this type of employment. That’s what we will explore in this session. We will cover a lot of ground—from looking at the emerging Post-Job, Problem-and-Project Economy, to understanding how to escape the “cubicle horizon,” to learning how to interview effectively.

Session 3: Critiquing Your Rewritten Resume
You will have from February 3-7 to rewrite your resume, using the template given to you in Session 1. You are invited to bring your rewritten resume to Session 3, when we will critique as many as we can in the time we have.
