    • Selecting a sample
    • Editing sections
    • Using the format features
    • Infobytes, Action Verbs and Examples

    Letter and Portfolio Builder Tools

    The Illinois workNet Resume Builder Tool has many useful tools besides just building a resume. Two of those tools were demonstrated during this webinar on May 23, 2017 at 1PM.

    In this webinar we covered:

    Letters:

    • the 9 different styles of letters that can be created in the Resume Builder tool,
    • how to use the tools with the letter feature,
    • how to share, download and save the letter,
    • how to create a welcome page for your website.

    Portfolios:

    • how portfolios can be used for other than artists
    • the 7 different types of portfolios that can be created
    • how to add or delete items in a portfolio.

    Websites and Video Resume

    Did you know that you can create a video resume and a mini-website for youself in the Illinois workNet Resume Builder tool? If you didn't and always wanted to do a video resume, this webinar is a must-watch!

    On May 24, 2017 at 10AM we covered how to create and use a website incorporating all of the tools previously covered in our other webinars on the Resume Builder tool. When employers search for you on the internet, having a web presence will hlep you be found. Add the resume, skills assessments, portfolios and letters to your website, pick an appearance and share your personal link on your cover letters and resume!

    Video resume's were the other half of our webinar on May 24. We demonstrated how to create a video resume with our resume builder tool. Two options were demonstrated - one with a teleprompter and the other without. Watch the recording for tips to create your own.

    Interview Prep and GPS Tool

    This last webinar, on May 25th, focused on the Interview practice section of the tool that is powered by Optimal Resume.

    The webinar demonstrated how to use the interview tool to practice a variety of question sets by using a web camera and using a text only option. Not only can you practice with this tool, but you can share how you answered each question with a coach to get feedback before you take your interview skills on the road!

    In addition, we touched on how you can opt in to the "GPS" feature of the Illinois workNet Resume Builder.
