Want to work in-house but aren’t sure how to make your résumé standout? In this free webinar you’ll learn how to show a potential employer that you’re the best candidate for the job.


Your resume 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 resume 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 free webinar will help you to craft a resume that highlights the impact you’ve made in your work history. Learn the persuasive strategies that work well in this genre, and techniques to tailor your resume format for different kinds of publishers.

This workshop will include two case studies: “Emma,” who is pursuing a career transition, and “Kim,” who is just starting out. Details available at Letitia’s shortishard website.
