Purdue University Calumet professor Casey Barczyk will host a resume-building workshop from 4 to 6 p.m. Feb. 11 at the Orland Township office, 14807 S. Ravinia Ave.
The workshop is free to township residents but registration is required.
The workshop will cover the following topics, according to a press release from the township: how to build a resume that opens the door to an interview, the formula for an impressive cover letter, how the appearance of a resume affects how it is received, dos and don’ts in creating a resume, and 16 skills that employers look for.
A resume often makes a first impression, and having a powerful resume that is not only formatted well but contains strong content is an essential marketing tool for individuals looking to get hired, the release said.
Barczyk also has taught classes on human resources management, planning, selection and placement, compensation and organizational management and training and development. He has authored several business journal articles.
To register, call (708) 403-4222.
Barczyk also plans an interviewing workshop in early March.
