Hudson Job Search: Resumes that get results

Kent Weeklies
Kris McGuigan

The Hudson Job Search meeting on Nov. 16 features Kris McGuigan, owner of Professional Courage and a certified resume writer, who says “On average, recruiters glance at a resume for only 6.25 seconds before assessing a candidate’s compatibility.”

Is your resume making the right first impression? Learn the best-kept secrets of professional resume writers, and how the use of key words and white space can ensure you receive a second glance. In this session, you will learn to:

• Develop attention-grabbing content and clean formatting.

• Customize your resume to your unique value proposition.

• Avoid common mistakes that can take you out of the running.

• Survive the Applicant Tracking system (ATS) black hole.

McGuigan has earned the prestigious ACRW designation, making her only a handful of Academy Certified Resume Writers across the globe to also hold a MBA. With 11 years of experience and training alongside some of the industry’s top experts, she creates and delivers career marketing tools that get results, including resumes, cover letters, and LinkedIn profiles. McGuigan was invited to join the Forbes Coaches Council in 2017.

With a brand formed by courage and constancy, McGuigan uses her own story to guide clients and audiences to success in an ever-changing job market. Promoting a focused mindset and providing tools to advance to the next level, she dispels the myth of career management as a commodity.
