Webinar event: Résumé tips, basics, and beyond

How do you write an effective résumé as a technical writer? What makes your résumé engaging and visually appealing to a client? How do you tailor your résumé for a job posting, or address a gap in your work history?

These are some of the topics that Renée McTavish will be discussing during a 45-minute webinar on writing résumés, cover letters, and LinkedIn profiles for technical writers. Join the STC Canada West Coast Chapter for an educational webinar filled with lots of practical tips.

Renée will talk about résumé summaries, writing about your accomplishments, formatting, and tips for using job postings to your advantage. She will also give her thoughts on designing writing portfolios–online versus print. If you are making a career change or are a student just entering the workforce, Renée will have resources that you will find useful.

Renée McTavish is a senior technical writer with over 10 years of experience writing for high-tech and small business clients. She currently works as a Certified Professional Résumé Writer™ (CPRW) with clients across Canada.
