Résumé Writing Workshop (Singapore).

Résumé Writing Workshop Singapore: Résumés (and CVs) go beyond job consideration tools. A résumé is a perspective document — your self-made invitation to an interview with the job you want. In other words, a résumé is not about what you can do, but what qualities you want an interviewer or organisation to see in you. In this course on résumé-writing, we will design and create benefit-driven stories that are career-centric and not self-centered. This workshop is best suited to career-seekers in Singapore and the region who want to rebrand, reinvent, and represent themselves to the role, the responsibility, and the organisation of their choice. The Quantico Company Pte Ltd is an ISO 9001:2015 Certified Organisation. This workshop has undergone and been certified by international quality assurance testing and audit.

Résumé Writing Workshop Overview.

Résumés are documents for influence: a specific form of copywriting that sells a specific product — you. From simple PDFs to state-of-the-art web apps and online portfolios, résumés are as diverse and abstract as the people they are designed by and desgined for. This workshop will focus on you — the owner of the résumé — and help you construct a story that employers want to know and be a part of.

Workshop Takeaways.

There’s a lot of résumé-writing advice. If we try to do everything, we end up with nothing. In other words, a résumé serves a specific purpose: merging objective skills with subjective opinion. We will learn to not only create a résumé for the next job, but for the two others after that. Your résumé is a future-proof document. Let’s learn how to write and how to think about writing for the future job of your choice. You will also learn how to create more than one résumé, depending on who your interviewer is, the job position, the industry you are targeting, and the country you are in.

On completion of this workshop, you will be able to:
Write a professional résumé that works for the Singapore and ASEAN job markets
Organise your skills, talents, and activities in the order that employers expect
Persuade through written and unwritten communication
Design a visually-appealing résumé that communicates personality and professionalism
Identify language cues that match hiring trends
Understand why employers use résumés and when they do not
Go beyond the traditional résumé format to communicate professional stories


Workshop Learning Objectives.

You will be able to understand the Singapore and ASEAN job market and write résumés that stand out in countries with diverse cultures. You will also learn how to create résumés that address both the expressed and unexpressed requirements and expectations of job listings, and craft speculative résumés that use the power of brand, conversations, and narratives. There are no conditions or pre-requisites for attending this workshop. However, please note that priority may be given to delegates who possess urgent job-seeking requirements.

Beyond the Workshop: Support doesn’t stop when the workshop is over. After all, you might be sending your résumé out in a week after the workshop ends, or even a month or year later. We know a thing or two about the process, and the importance of having an expert and human being look over your résumé from time to time. As a participant of lifelong learning at Quantico you have access to your workshop instructor(s) for as long as you require. We’ve been helping participants write phenomenal résumés since 2005. Your résumé is a constant work in progress; that is the nature of such documents. Your workshop gives you everything you need to write the best résumé. Your post-workshop support keeps the momentum going. Quantico’s community support is free and for life. Keep in touch and keep coming back for more help, insights, and strategies on building your perfect résumé.
