CWB: Resume Workshop
1373 Grant St. Denver, September 16, 2014; 5:30pm - 7:30pm
Colorado Welcome Back, a program of Spring Institute for Intercultural Learning, helps foreign-trained healthcare professionals re-establish careers in healthcare in Colorado. We seek to build a bridge between the pool of internationally-trained health workers living in our state and the need for linguistically and culturally competent healthcare providers. This program is for people with healthcare training from other countries who have moved to Colorado and would like to work in a healthcare setting again.
During this workshop, each participant will create a successful résumé needed for managing his or her healthcare career. In particular, we will focus on helping you:• understand the purpose of a résumé• what recruiters look for in a résumé• what information should be left off the résumé• how to best represent your skills and education• How to represent your health care and non-healthcare experience and professional accomplishments.
For questions, please contact Ben Harris at firstname.lastname@example.org.
