April’s TOPIC: Resume Workshop for People with Lived Experience of Brain Injury and Caregivers

Do you need help with your resume? Whether you’re applying for paid or volunteer positions, starting your career, changing paths, or highly experienced, this 2-hour in-person workshop can help with your goals. 

In the first half of the workshop, the speaker will share resume-writing strategies. Then, she will review attendees’ resumes as time allows. If you’d like to receive feedback on your resume, please bring hard copies of the following items:

  • Your resume (most important)
  • A job or volunteer posting that interests you. This will help the speaker figure out how to tailor your resume to best fit your goals.
  • If you don’t have access to a printer, feel free to contact info@bist.ca
