I had a great trip to Las Vegas for the APICS Conference last week. I had two sessions – one on interviewing and one on resume writing. Both were based on sections of my books.
The interview section covered a number of topics but the core was the STAR(L). This is technique for answering interview questions that is one of the most powerful and effective interview tools you can learn.
The resume session focused on the resume assessment from my new book, Resume Writing for Manufacturing Careers. I took the checklist from Chapter 13: Resume Assessment and delivered it as a presentation. This checklist is an invaluable tool for assessing your resume. Not only will it identify problem areas that you need to improve, but it gives specific best practice recommendations.
You can learn the STAR(L) technique and get the Resume Assessment with my books:
