GETTING THE INTERVIEW: RESUMES, REFERENCES AND COVER LETTERS
Webinar with Michael Mitchell, MAT
Wednesday, May 13, 2020
In today’s child and youth care (CYC) environment, funding, political events or other dynamic changes can find CYC professionals out on the street looking for their next position, with little or no advance notice.
Having an updated and effective resume, is not unlike knowing where your life-preserver is (and how to use it) during a lifeboat drill, or in the event of a real emergency. Hopefully, things won’t ever get to this point, but do you really want to take that chance?
Would you be prepared on short notice? In competing with dozens of other applicants, would you make the cut and land that all-important job interview?
Either way, we all know that change, like taxes and death, is inevitable. So why not be prepared
now? Preparing today can bring so much peace-of-mind later, just when you need it most. This has proven to be a very popular “real-world” training, which everyone can use, regardless of their CYC specialty or organizational position.
“Thank you so much!! You pointed out things I didn't even think of. And you're exactly right: I know I'll apply to a variety of positions, so it's a trick trying to speak to them all with one page!”—Rebecca

Transformational Change Project
The Transformational Change Project is offered collaboratively by ACYCP and CYCCB to help organizations and their leaders identify what they need to do to transition their programs and develop a Transformation Plan that breaks the process into doable steps.
Expert support is offered during the early stages of implementing the Transformation Plan. This is provided by teleconference meetings over a 12 month period. Each organization will work with Tom Woll and other national consultants who offer knowledge of current trends in the field and successful strategies that will help organizations remain competitive as the field evolves.
