February 26: Grab an employer’s attention in 15 seconds

Featured Events Personal & Professional Development | Feb 21, 2013 |


A potential employer opens your application and downloads your résumé.

In 15 seconds, you’re on the “call” list — or you’re toast.

So much of the hiring process is like this: Time-crunched recruiters and managers have to make split-second  decisions about whether you’re moving on.

  • Can your résumé make an impression that fast?
  • How about your LinkedIn profile?
  • Do you have an “elevator pitch” that’ll get someone’s attention just as quickly?

This workshop will help you answer yes to those questions.

Date: Tuesday, February 26, 2013
Time: 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Location: Daleo Hall B (lower-level room in Hughes)
