GETTING THE INTERVIEW: RESUMES, REFERENCES AND COVER LETTERS
WEBINAR WITH MICHAEL MITCHELL, MAT
THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2018
Bad News: Resumes, references and cover letters don’t get you the job.
Good News: They do get you the INTERVIEW, which is what does get you the job!
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?
But, what if you were offered a promotion, or advancement opportunity with another employer? 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.
