should be updated whenever your experience, skill level or other
Your job could be
downsized and you will need a resume to apply for a new job. You
might decide to apply for a promotion within your company and you
will be asked for a resume. You might hear about an amazing
opportunity you know would suit you perfectly and you will need a
resume quickly to apply for it. You might work in an industry that
provides opportunities for freelance work and you need a resume to
show potential clients.
Your resume is a unique document and you
might find certain things just must be included, or you can leave
off things others must include. The ExpertRating Resume Writing
Workshop Certification course will focus on resumes and cover

and why you need one. Then it will go over
the six sections of a resume: Heading,
objective, education, work experience,

Friday - Lesson 02
lesson will outline the skills that
you've developed in five areas of your
life—work, education, internships,
volunteering, and extracurricular
activities. Then this lesson will edit

most relevant to employment, and choose
an important skill for each area. Next,
this lesson will come up with
personality traits, and narrow those
down to the ones that are useful in a
business setting. You'll be asked to
list the three accomplishments that
you're most proud of, and the skills
that you used to make these goals come
Wednesday - Lesson 03
lesson is going to cover the rules of
resumes. For instance, a resume should
be only one page, and it should be
laser-printed or typeset by a
professional printer, and it should be
printed on bond paper. You're also going
to learn what not to include on your
resume, and why it's perfectly
acceptable to use the word "I" on your

in reverse chronological order. Your current

experience section of your resume. This
lesson will discuss the advantages and
disadvantages of this type of resume. You'll

formats—the functional resume and the
hybrid—the combined resume. Although not as

have much experience for a particular
position, may choose a functional format.

at the education section of your resume and
discuss what's included in an honors
Wednesday - Lesson 07
is going to discuss references. It'll begin
by looking at examples of two reference
letters written by two different
individuals. Then, this lesson will discuss
how to request a reference letter, and take
a look at a sample dialogue of this. This
lesson will discuss the different people you
could request a letter from, and take a look
at the difference between a regular
reference and a sealed reference. Later,

own. Lesson 7 will finish up with some
examples of how you can refer to your
references on your resume.
Friday - Lesson 08
lesson, you'll learn how to turn job
descriptions into advertising copy. Your
resume is an advertisement for a product,

your product) and the benefits (how it will
help or aid the customer) of the product.
You must be as persuasive and specific as
possible when describing your features and
benefits. Finally, this lesson will discuss
company job descriptions and why they're
important to you.
