Have you heard the urban legend that an experienced college recruiter can make an initial decision on whether or not to read your resume in less than six seconds? Would you like to see if your current resume can survive the six-second glance?Would you like to improve your chances of surviving the initial cut? Do you know what happens to your resume once you hand it to the recruiter? How do you craft a resume that competes with 100,000 other resumes? Dr. Matthew Clark has supported college recruiting efforts for a variety of large corporations and is a master at sorting resumes in six seconds or under.  Join us August 28th, 2013 in Skiles 005  at noon  for a discussion of how most industry companies handle resumes,  what types of follow up activities are worth-while, and, how to improve your chances of having your resume pass the "six second glance".
