Course Description

Write a resume that gets attention and helps you get the job you want.

Your resume is the first step through the door of your dream job, but the truth is most resumes don’t get past the screening phase because they contain too little or the wrong information or they are not highlighting the skills necessary for the job being advertised.

In this webinar, you will learn how to write your resume to highlight your strengths in the CYC Domains of Practice, identify key areas CYC employers are assessing to determine if you are right for the job advertised, and how to structure your resume to get read and make it to the interview.

This webinar will:

  • Help you determine the job criteria or competencies your dream job requires.
  • Assist you to identify your skills and list them within the CYC Domains of Practice.
  • Teach you to read a job description and identify the qualifications required to excel at the position advertised.
  • Show you how to tailor your resume to the job you are applying for.
  • Provide you with an example of CYC resumes.
  • Examine the use of an e-portfolio for your resume, and how to structure it to highlight your experience and skills.
  • Look at how social media influences the interview selection process.

This webinar is designed to help you write a strength-based resume that will get your skills noticed.


  • Identifying the job you want.
  • What makes you different?
  • Deconstructing a job advertisement to understand what employers require.
  • Aligning job criteria or competencies to your skill set and the CYC Domains of Practice.
  • What to include, and what not to include on your professional resume.
  • Using an e-portfolio with your resume.
  • Resume structure and presentation.
  • Using social media as a professional.

Who should take this course?

If you are new to the employment sector or updating your resume for your next career move, you will benefit from creating a professional CYC resume that will help you ‘land an interview’. If you are working in the CYC profession you will want your resume to highlight your Domains of Practice skills and knowledge.
