Description: This 3 part workshop is comprised of one-hour sessions held on three consecutive Thursday evenings.
First, we will explore "Recruitment and the Transfer Process". An active job search is much more than a resume posted online at hr.duke.edu/careers. Understanding job descriptions, networking, the Recruiter's role/Manager's role, challenges, when you want to find a new opportunity at Duke, and how to identify the right jobs are keys to being successful in your search. Staff from HR recruitment will provide insight on seeking a transfer at Duke.
Session two "Resumes at Duke: Facts and Myths," Will touch on key resume questions, "what's the best resume, a one page resume or multiple pages"? "What's a typical key word for the resume?" "Which font is ideal for the resume"? During this session you will get tips on techniques for writing a strong resume for Duke's online applicant tracking system.
Session three "Interviewing 101". You've found your focus, prepared your resume, applied for jobs, and then you get the call for an interview! "What now"? Interviewing 101 shares tips on how to prepare for an interview, how to navigate typical interview scenarios, and how to follow-up after an interview. Learn suggestions on what TO DO and what TO AVOID. Join us as you continue building your career at Duke.
Sessions meet from 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm.
