Resume Writing 2 Course Bundle includes the following courses, below is a summary of each course: 

Course 1 - Resume Writing

Components of a Resume
In our first lesson, we're going to discuss what a resume is and why you need one. Then we'll go over the six sections of a resume: Heading, objective, education, work experience, special skills, and references, and you'll learn how job seekers utilize each one to market themselves to prospective employers. We'll finish up the lesson by discussing some other resources on the Internet where you can look over sample resume headings and objectives.

Self-Assessment
Today, we'll outline the skills that you've developed in five areas of your life—work, education, internships, volunteering, and extracurricular activities. Then we'll edit those skills down to the ones that are most relevant to employment, and choose an important skill for each area. Next, we'll come up with personality traits, and narrow those down to the ones that are useful in a business setting. I'm going to ask you to list the three accomplishments that you're most proud of, and the skills that you used to make these goals come to fruition.

Rules of Resumes
In this lesson, we're going to cover the rules of resumes. For instance, a resume should be only one page, and it should be laser-printed or typeset by a professional printer, and it should be printed on bond paper. You're also going to learn what not to include on your resume, and why it's perfectly acceptable to use the word "I" on your resume if you so desire. We'll conclude the lesson with a discussion about Truth in Resume Writing. Through example, I'm going to demonstrate how to portray job duties in the best possible light without getting yourself into trouble.

Chronological Resumes
In Lesson 4, you'll learn about the most popular style of resume—the chronological resume. In this type of resume, you'll list work experience in reverse chronological order. Your current or last position is listed first in the work experience section of your resume. We'll discuss the advantages and disadvantages of this type of resume. You'll also learn how to minimize a gap in work history. Although many people will have a few small gaps in work history, too many gaps, and gaps that are too large will put prospective employers on alert.

Functional Resumes
In this lesson, we're going to go over the other two resume formats—the functional resume and the hybrid—the combined resume. Although not as popular as the chronological resume, these resume formats do fulfill a need for some job seekers. Employees who are following a new direction in their career, or who don't have much experience for a particular position, may choose a functional format. You'll learn the differences between functional resumes and chronological ones, and as part of the lesson, we'll look at four people's chronological resumes and practice converting them into functional and combined resumes.

A Look at Your Resume
In this lesson, we're going to concentrate on your resume. We'll discuss how to set up the heading of your resume and the options you have available to you when you're doing so. Then we'll look at some sample resume headings. You'll learn how to write a persuasive objective for your personal resume, and then we'll discuss career profiles and summaries of qualifications. We'll also go over examples of objectives, career profiles, and summaries. Finally, we'll look at the education section of your resume and discuss what's included in an honors section.

References
In this lesson, we're going to discuss references. We'll begin by looking at examples of two reference letters written by two different individuals. Then, we'll discuss how to request a reference letter, and take a look at a sample dialogue of this. We'll discuss the different people you could request a letter from, and take a look at the difference between a regular reference and a sealed reference. Later, we'll look at a sample reference sheet that you can use as a model to construct your own. We'll finish up with some examples of how you can refer to your references on your resume.

Work Experience
In today's lesson, you'll learn how to turn job descriptions into advertising copy. Your resume is an advertisement for a product, and you are the product, and your potential employer is the customer. You need to express the features (actual description of your product) and the benefits (how it will help or aid the customer) of the product. You must be as persuasive and specific as possible when describing your features and benefits. Finally, we'll discuss company job descriptions and why they're important to you.

Technical Resumes
In today's lesson, you'll learn all about technical resumes (resumes for engineering, data processing, and other technical and management careers). We're going to discuss how these resumes differ from traditional resumes. You'll learn about buzzwords, and find out how to use them effectively on a technical resume. Then you'll learn some writing tips for technical resumes, and we'll go over a recommended technical resume format. We'll finish up the lesson by looking over some examples of technical resumes—one chronological and one functional.

Online Resumes
In this lesson, you'll learn the three methods that employers use to locate a job candidate on the Internet. We're going to discuss resume banks, search engines, and newsgroups. I'll explain what you need in order to get Internet access, and the three versions you'll need in order to post your resume on the Web. We'll go over keywords and other online resume tips, and I'll explain why you need to protect yourself on the Internet, as well as ways to accomplish this. We'll finish up with a discussion about how to post your resume

Cover Letters
In Lesson 11, you're going to learn how to write an effective cover letter. I'll explain what a cover letter is, and when you'll need one. Then we'll go over the different parts of a cover letter, and look at several examples of them. Finally, we'll discuss the follow-up sentence that you might include in the closing of your cover letter and why it's important in your job search.

Formatting Resumes
Our final lesson is all about the new resume that you've been working on throughout this course. We're going to take one final critical look at it: Is your name centered at the top of the page? Is it highlighted by a larger font, bolding, or underlining? Is your objective highlighted, along with your education, college, and work experience? Were you consistent with font sizes, capitalization, spacing, and punctuation? Is everything lined up vertically? The left-hand side of your resume should be lined up vertically, but the right-hand side should be ragged. Is your resume perfect with no typos or spelling errors? By the time you finish today's lesson, your resume will be ready to present to prospective employers.

Course 2 - Twelve Steps to a Successful Job Search

Developing & Maintaining A Positive Attitude Throughout Your Job Hunt.

Lost your job or frustrated in your existing occupation? A job search can be challenging and a real blow to your psyche. Due to the economy or the uniqueness of the opportunity you want, looking for a job can be difficult and emotionally draining. But don't let circumstances get you down. If you're down in the dumps and not feeling confident, you'll convey that energy in your interviews. In our first lesson, you'll learn how to develop and maintain a positive and winning attitude throughout your job hunt so you can be prepared for any challenges ahead.

Identifying Key Selling Points That Differentiate You From Your Competition.

One of the best ways to build a solid foundation for your job search is to identify your core strengths and competencies. In today's lesson, you'll learn how to identify those aspects of your personality and experience that will differentiate you from your competition and give you a winning edge throughout your job search.

Defining Your Ideal Job.

Would you ever go on vacation by just jumping in a car and driving without knowing where you're going? Most likely not, but that's how many people approach their job search. Before you can get a job, you first have to decide what job you really want. Many job-hunters say, I just want any job. That attitude won't cut it in today's economy. If you don't know what you want, how are you going to get it? In this lesson, I'll guide you through step-by-step exercises that will help you define the job you really want.

Creating a Powerful Message - How To Write Eye-Catching Resumes & Cover letters.

Advertising is one way companies promote their products. When job hunting, you are the product, so you'll need a solid message. Your advertising materials will be your cover letters and resumes. In this lesson, we'll look at how to create a winning message so companies want to interview you. We'll also explore scores of sample resumes and cover letters.

Networking and Finding Job Opportunities.

Jobs rarely show up and fall in your lap. Sometimes you have to go out there and create your own opportunities. In today's lesson, we'll talk about where and how you can network to find the best job opportunities for you.

Convincing A Company To Hire You Even When No Jobs Are Available - Creating Your Personal Business Case.

In today's economy, companies aren't hiring like they used to. Sometimes you have to convince a company to create a position that might not currently exist. In this lesson, we'll look at ways you can demonstrate the value you can add to a company, and how to develop a message that can make companies want to create a position for you.

Selling Yourself to get the Interview.

There are many ways to find job opportunities. But just finding the opportunity isn't enough. You have to convince the hiring manager that you should be considered. This lesson will show you how to sell yourself so companies want to grant you an interview.

Preparing and Practicing for the Interview.

Once you've secured the job interview, your work has just begun. Now you have to be prepared to shine during your interview so managers want to hire you. In today's lesson, we'll talk about how to practice and prepare for any job interview. We'll also look at over 50 of the interview questions that are asked most often so you can practice and prepare your responses.

Knowing the Traits Interviewers Want in their Ideal Candidates.

Knowing what interviewers want is one of the keys to winning the interview. In this lesson, we'll identify the top qualities and characteristics that interviewers look for in ideal job candidates.

Mastering The 3 Phases of a Successful Interview.

You can prepare all you want for the interview, but the ultimate test is the interview itself. The interview is what ultimately makes or breaks your chances of winning the job. In today's lesson, we'll break the interview down into three phases and learn how to master the skills of communication and personal selling so managers can't wait to hire you.

Following-Up After the Interview.

The job-hunting process doesn't end with the interview itself. To really make yourself stand out from the crowd, you'll need to have solid follow-up after the interview. In this lesson, you'll learn the proper way to maintain communication after your interview so you can secure the job offer.

Accepting, Rejecting, and Negotiating Job Offers.

If you've followed the first 11 lessons, hopefully, you'll be flooded with job offers. Once you get these offers, what should you do? In this lesson, we'll discuss the ins and outs of accepting, rejecting, and negotiating job offers so that you can be delighted with your eventual outcome—landing the job you want at a salary you desire!
