The Orthodox Union Job Board will host two “Resume Checkup Days” in South Florida for students and professionals. The events are open by reservation only at www.oujobs.org on a first come, first served basis.
The first event will take place on Thursday, July 25 from 6-8:30 p.m. at the Boca Raton Synagogue, 7900 Montoya Circle. The second event will be held in Miami Beach on Tuesday, August 6 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Beth Israel Congregation, 770 W. 40th Street.
The OU Job Board created the concept for the “15-minute resume tune-up,” which developed into Resume Checkup Day. Career counselors and expert resume writers spend time with each candidate to review his or her materials. Suggestions and corrections are made using the newest resume guidelines, and candidates are assisted in pursuing their job searches.
“Taking fifteen minutes to tune-up a resume can make a difference in you life forever,” said Michael Rosner, international director of the OU Job Board. “Whether you are employed or not, it’s always a good idea to have your resume checked out by a professional who can evaluate its strengths and weaknesses and advise the best ways to present yourself and your qualifications in the best possible light.”
The OU Job Board has held successful resume tune-ups in the Greater New York-New Jersey areas, Atlanta, Memphis and in Israel.
