Career Development Webinar Series: 
How to stand out in the candidate slate with a bulletproof resume

with featured speaker Molly Robb, Managing Director, Healthcare Venture Capital and Private Equity Practice at BioQuest, a Diversified Search Company

In the era of LinkedIn, Indeed, and other electronic job search mechanisms, the need for a more “traditional” resume has been called into question. In this webinar, Molly Robb will explain why a modernized version of a “traditional” resume remains an essential component of the job search process and discuss the key characteristics of a bullet-proof, modern resume that will help you stand out from the pack of talented candidates. Topics to be addressed include, but may not be limited to:
  • How to tell your story (and what to call it)
  • Developing and delivering your elevator pitch
  • Describing your tangible core competencies and key skills
  • Providing a description of companies and operating environments
  • Distinguishing job responsibilities from your accomplishments
  • Using metrics to quantify and effectively present accomplishments
  • Presenting “outside of work” and community involvement and activity
  • Using and tailoring your resume when looking for a Board position
