On the Menu: How to Have the Best Résumé in Every Pile

In this job market, having a powerful, attention-getting résumé is a major competitive advantage.

How good, bad, or ugly is your résumé?

If you’re like most people, you make the mistake of deciding what should be on the résumé at the same time that you’re writing it and formatting it. They are, however, three different processes.
And most people who are “just updating” their existing résumés usually fall into the habit of “painting over paint.” If you want your résumé to stand out in a crowd, register to learn five things you can do to have the best résumé of your life – for the rest of your life.

Ask yourself:
Does your résumé truly represent your top skills and accomplishments?
Are you confident about adapting your current résumé to any role for which you are applying?
When you read it, does it make you think of “The Department of Redundancy Department”?
Do you ever wonder why people hate working on their – and reading others’ – résumés?

IF YOU DON’T WANT TO READ YOUR OWN RÉSUMÉ, WHO (BESIDES YOUR FRIENDS) WILL?
That’s why we’re doing this class!
We’ll give you tips on how to identify and present your value in clear, concise, compelling career communications.
What if, when an interviewer looks at your résumé during the interview, you felt…
…proud of how it presented you, your value, and your accomplishments?
…ready to discuss how you’ve contributed value to the organizations for which you’ve worked?
THAT’S WHAT WE WANT FOR YOU.

In addition to how to have the best résumé in every pile, you’ll learn how to:
– Be so proud of your résumé, you’ll sit up straighter in interviews.
– Divide and conquer the résumé development process.
– Invite humans to actually read your résumé.
– Emphasize what you want to do in the next job vs. everything you’ve done.
If you’re ready to learn how to have the best résumé of your life – for the rest of your life – then register now!

Our Session Leader

Linda Merry Gutin is a job search coach specializing in guiding professionals through career transitions and in “landing the right job right now.”
When asked, “How’d you get started doing résumés?,” she quotes a hometown friend: “It’s no surprise Linda G. became a writer/editor. I remember in junior high, when we passed her a note, she’d pass it back with the spelling corrected!”

After studying how to maximize organizational effectiveness (productivity times profitability) through human systems, she’s become an expert at helping people:
understand what career fulfillment looks like; and
present their value in stellar resumes, bios, and LinkedIn profiles

For several years, while doing standup comedy in NYC and LA by night, Linda supported herself writing résumés and cover letters.
Before starting The Gutin Way to Résumé, Linda spent time in the corporate world as a: customer service supervisor for International Paper Company in New York City and then Memphis, Tennessee; and writing professional bios and an award-winning corporate newsletter for Booz-Allen & Hamilton in New York City.
Born in the Bronx and raised in Teaneck, NJ, Linda G. has an undergraduate degree from Union College in Schenectady, New York, and a master’s in organizational psychology from Columbia University.

She now resides in Durham, North Carolina, where she practices writing her own bio in the third person.

What’s On The Menu?

At Frontier RTP, we are constantly growing, and hope you will come along for the ride! We developed On the Menu as a way of helping you and your business grow to the next level, whatever that next level may be.

Each month, we offer a lunchtime workshop on a special topic related to small businesses or startups. On the Menu is taught by a diverse group of experts from around the Triangle (some of whom started their business here at Frontier RTP!) in a small group setting.

Our hope is that these workshops will not only be rich in content, but spark dialogue, start relationships, and make your lunch break meaningful. Did we mention there will be food? For those joining us in-person, there will be a free lunch available. If you are joining us virtually, we invite you to bring your lunch to the Zoom. No shame in eating with your camera on!

We want you to easily access our events and webinars. Please reach out to us with accommodation requests at programming@rtp.org and we’ll do our best to facilitate.
