Resume Writing Workshops

All CBT students have access to resume writing workshops conducted by our placement officers. These workshops or seminars will help all students to properly write resume that can result in a job interview.

Here are some tips on how to write a powerful resume, which are included in our workshops:

If you’re looking for a job, you need a resume.  Your resume is your calling card, your advertisement, your flyer.  It’s a hand-out that shows employers what a great catch you are. The purpose of a resume is to help you get job interviews.

There are many resume styles you can use, however, a common resume has five basic parts:

  1. The Heading
  2. Job Objective
  3. Education & Training
  4. Accomplishments
