SoACE 2011 Conference

This year’s Southern Association of Colleges and Employers conference, A Vibrant Past and an Extraordinary Future, was held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Savannah, Georgia. The four-day event (December fourth through the seventh) was highlighted by Dough Harris (Sunday Pre-Conference Speaker) and by keynote speaker Vince Lombardi, Jr.

Education Career Services exhibited at the conference, highlighting products and services to hundreds of attendees. As a publishing company partnering with colleges and universities across the United States to develop and deliver career management textbooks, workbooks, and support material, it is always a privilege to gain insight and potential applications for student benefit from Career Service Professionals. Additionally, Education Career Service’s Danny Huffman was invited to share best practice approaches during a breakout session on December 5th. The interactive presentation, entitled “Hitting the target, a bulls-eye approach to student-branded resumes,” is now available for your review. Here’s a quick abstract of the session:

In a recent survey conducted by the Graham Management Group, 1,000 resumes were evaluated; the findings were alarming while the lessons can be an empowering tool securing student advantage. Employers are seeking candidates who stand out, who prove their value in a skills-based branded résumé, and who speak the right language.

Professional resume writers and career coaches have been eliminating elimination factors for years. We’ll uncover these factors along with strategies to address them. Secrets will be revealed as we review techniques, gain insightful tips, and confirm what it takes to capture a hiring manager's eye.
