From Wall Street to Main Street-Strategies for Creating Hard-Hitting Resumes for Financial Services Professionals Who Have Been Hit Hard
By now we’ve all seen it. Financial services professionals have been hit especially hard during this economic downturn and many struggle to reinvent themselves in this new economy. But for many, the answer does not lie in a total career change but rather in a retooling of their current skills and competencies to make them more attractive candidates for another industry or job function. During this one-hour seminar, we will explore résumé-writing strategies to help our financial services clients better compete for future opportunities. More specifically, participants will learn:
- How to uncover clients’ transferable skills during the résumé intake sessions.
- Writing tips for positioning clients for new roles in growing industries rather than pigeon-holing them in roles in shrinking ones.
- Tips for leveraging testimonials to prove competency regardless of industry.
- Formatting suggestions to eliminate industry bias and optimize the focus on core skills.
