Ready your resume with free community workshop

People who are out of work or looking for a new job will have the opportunity to get free advice on how to rev up their resume.

Bermuda’s Emerging Professionals (BEPRO), the young professionals division of the Bermuda Chamber of Commerce, will be hosting a free community workshop on Saturday, May 18 at CedarBridge Academy from 11am to 1pm.

BEPRO organisers say the workshop is designed for Bermudians to learn how to create a resume or enhance the one they already have to help in their search for employment.

Cleverly coined, ‘Ready Your Resume’, the workshop will begin with a short presentation from Jennifer Smatt-Adkins, president of Ontru Limited and the Bermuda Human Resources Association. The ‘how-to’ presentation will be followed by one-on-one tutorials at individual computer stations providing participants with a practical hands-on experience.

Attendees will have access to computers and printers on-site and will receive a free USB flash drive, courtesy of Digicel, to take their resume home with them, as well as other materials related to finding a job.

“It is BEPRO’s desire that the individuals who attend the workshop be in genuine need of assistance in this area; those who do not have such resources readily available to them, and that possessing a resume they are proud of, will help set attendees on the right path toward obtaining the job they choose to pursue,” BEPRO organizers said in a statement.

Anyone interested in attending is encouraged to RSVP as soon as possible to vwheatley@bcc.bm as there is limited space available.
