Résumé workshop planned for June 13

Students Employment and Career Services will host an Optimal Résumé workshop from 12:30 to 1 p.m. Thursday, June 13, for students who want to learn more about creating professional-looking résumés.

Student Employment and Career Services Director Debra Vaughn said the program has been very successful and helpful to students.

“A résumé is one of the most important tools a person uses in their career,” she said.

Vaughn said students don’t have to attend the workshop to create a résumé. By logging on to www.occc.optimalresume.com, students can create an account using their OCCC student email. There, they can choose from various templates to create a résumé.

Since Optimal Résumés debut at OCCC nearly four years ago, Vaughn said, more than 9,000 students have created a résumé using the site.

“Once the résumé is done, almost 100 percent of students will say ‘Wow, that looks pretty good,’” she said. “Our students are accomplished people and we just want to help them with that process.”

Students also can stop by Student Employment and Career Services located on the first floor of the Main Building any time for one-on-one help with creating résumés, cover letters and more, Vaughn said. No appointment is required, she said.
