Unfortunately, many colleges really don't prepare their graduates with the real life tools that they need to get a job. Do they even realize that resumes are on life-support? That if you don't have a strong LinkedIn profile and an active presence on the site, by the time you are a junior, you're behind the curve. Do you have a business card? Yes, before you get that job, not after.
do-over.me can help. They're poised to provide support for you during the transition from student to working professional. do-over.me will help you stand out in a sea of mortar boards!
do-over.me is holding a workshop at the Geneva Public Library – Build Your Tool Kit – College Edition on Tuesday, January 10 from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM. This interactive workshop will allow each participant to create a professional resume that acts as a marketing document and gets the interview. Each participant will craft a LinkedIn profile that will make them stand out. Geneva Public Library and do-over.me understand the need for creating a network and helping participants understand and learn to effectively build a network.
Participants should bring their own internet ready device with their resume loaded and have a basic LinkedIn profile already created. This workshop is limited to 12 people so please register soon to reserve your spot (http://www.do-over.me/registering-for-events/).
