Writing a Strong Resume: Avoiding the Resume "Black Hole"

Do you ever wonder where resumes go after you apply? Does a recruiter ever look at your resume? This webinar will review strategies for writing a strong resume and tips for standing out in the applicant tracking system (ATS). The webinar is free to all Penn State Alumni. Although the webinar is accessible from a mobile device, we recommend using a laptop or desktop computer.
