Need to take your resume to the next level to secure your next role? The Black MBA KY Chapter has you covered!

The Black MBA is hosting its first ‘Resume Writing Workshop.’ The resume workshop will provide detailed explanations, as well as step-by-step processes for creating an effective resume. We’ll have two portions for the workshop, an instructional portion that will go into best practices for resume writing and do’s and don’ts from members of the Louisville Society for Humana Resources Board. The 2nd half will be dedicated for application. It’s important that we leverage what we’ve learned and put those insights into practice for a competitive job market. The goal is for you to walk away with a resume you’re confident to show off to potential employers.

Refreshments will be provided.
Please bring a copy of your resume for the application portion, if you have a technology device bring that as well.
