The Headhunters Co-Founder & President, Danielle Bragge, presented a webinar on How to Make Your Resume Sizzle and How to Interview Like a Pro
Resumes and interviews are the basic foundation of a job search. The quality of your resume will make-or-break your chances of getting to the interview stage, and if it doesn’t sizzle, it will be lost in the stacks of resumes on every hiring manager’s desk. Once you’ve created a top-notch resume and land an interview, you need to know how to prepare, make a great first impression, and answer questions effectively.

- How to make a great first impression in your resume and in the interview
