"Take the pain out of résumé building and set your clients up for job search success." —Ronane Lloyd, instructor

Important Information About Our Real-Time Webinars

All webinar times are in Eastern Time. For more information on how EFA webinars are conducted, please see this page.

Editing a résumé is more like other types of editing than you might think. A résumé is as personal as a memoir, as narrative as a novel, and as factual as an article. You will need to know how to figure out its focus, determine the most effective information to retain, what to get rid of, and how to maintain your client’s voice throughout.  If these are things you already do when editing fiction or nonfiction, you’re primed to add résumé editing to the list of services you offer.

In this 60-minute webinar led by an experienced HR professional and editor, you’ll learn to help your client create a modern résumé built for today’s job market—one that will help get them past the online bots, outshine the competition, and impress a live decision-maker. If you still think “References Available Upon Request” is the height of professionalism, this webinar is for you.

Ronane Lloyd (she/her) blends a diverse background, ready sense of humor, and love of words. She will work to listen, understand, and guide you in enhancing content to drive engagement in your work, whether it’s your resume, website, blog, or story.
