How To Write A Persuasive Resume Using Critical Thinking

Every semester I encourage students to make it a course objective to have me review their resume. I can save students a great deal of time by presenting my initial set of recommnedations as an instructional video. Students are encouraged to view this 10-minute video, and then craft a draft of their resume along the lines discussed herein. I can then read student resume and discuss the persuasiveness of their arguments.

I encourage constructive feedback related to these recommendations. Students consistently tell me that this method is quite useful. Please feel free to contact me with questions or comments using the contact information found on the left-hand side of this page.

It make take a minute or two for this video to load. Please be patient.
