"Your freelance work makes you a standout job candidate. Here’s how your résumé can reflect that." —Letitia Henville, 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.

Your résumé is your opportunity to show a potential employer that you know how to solve their problems. While your cover letter gives you the space to detail your achievements, your résumé must succinctly demonstrate both the scope and the depth of your experience. Focusing on job-seekers interested in in-house positions in the publishing world, this one-hour webinar will help you to craft a résumé that highlights the impact you’ve made as a freelance editor. Learn the persuasive strategies that work well in this genre, and techniques to tailor your résumé format for different kinds of publishers.

During the webinar, we will go over two case studies: “Emma,” who is pursuing a career transition, and “Kim,” who is just starting out. We’ll also explore two different types of résumé formats (functional and chronological) and explain how to choose which one best represents your work. No matter where you are in your career, this webinar will help you take the next step.
