Before the pandemic, hiring in many countries was at the highest level ever. Beyond this, the hiring of PhDs worldwide surged by over 500% from 2016 to 2019. During this time, many job candidates were able to cut corners with their job search and, in particular, with their resume submissions. Instead of targeting individual resumes based on the company and position in question, many candidates simply sent out generic versions of their resume. Instead of carefully integrating industry specific transferable skills, core competencies and other keywords, these candidates merely listed their job duties and technical expertise. Today, and in any recession, a more strategic approach is needed. During this webinar, you will learn how to target your resume to an individual job posting and you will learn which of the 5 resume formats to use given the career in question, your technical background, and your experience level, and when to use them.
