Spring is the perfect time to clean up your resume during the free Spring Resume Review on Thursday, March 26, 2020, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Cambridge Recreation Center, 3930 Cambridge St., Las Vegas, NV 89119.
More than a half-dozen resume professionals from Workforce Connections’ One-Stop Career Centers and the Nevada Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation’s (DETR) JobConnects will be on hand to offer no-cost one-on-one resume reviews. Walk-ins are welcome. Attendees are asked to bring a hard copy of their resume, as well as a digital copy in an email or on a flash drive.
The Spring Resume Review comes about a week before the Spring Job Fair co-hosted by Clark County Commissioners Jim Gibson and Tick Segerblom. The Spring Job Fair will be on April 3, 2020, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Clark County Government Center. More than 75 employers and 1,200 job seekers are expected to attend.
“We know many people are looking for opportunities to increase their paychecks. But the reality is, most employers will only spend about thirty seconds looking at a resume before deciding if it makes the cut,” said Commissioner Tick Segerblom. “We want to provide job seekers every tool possible to make sure they make a great impression.”
“It never hurts to have another set of eyes on your resume to make sure they are no common mistakes, such as misspellings or poor grammar,” said Commissioner Jim Gibson. “Plus, these days, resumes not only have to impress recruiters, but also computer screening programs. This is a chance for an expert to weigh in on your resume, and it doesn’t cost anything.”
Career coaches will also be on-hand to help job seekers sign up for EmployNV.gov, a free job assistance website, as well as make them aware of other no-cost employment and training assistance provided by the public workforce development system.
No registration is needed for the Spring Resume Review, but job seekers are encouraged to register for the Spring Job Fair on April 3, 2020, at www.nvcareercenter.org/springjobfair2020.
