Top Resume, Cover Letter, and LinkedIn Mistakes That Keep You Stuck

Understand current hiring processes and technologies and uncover the top mistakes made.

Career-driven professionals often find themselves stuck in roles they aren't loving or in a job search that feels like it will never end. Many feel ghosted by recruiters, that they don't have enough of the right experience, or are frequently dubbed the runner-up when compared to other qualified candidates. Whether you are struggling to advance into more progressive leadership roles, pivot into another industry, or transition onto a new career altogether, there are common mistakes that hold the majority of job seekers back and quick fixes that can trigger callbacks for interviews in a matter of days. This course will help job seekers at all career levels understand current hiring processes and technologies and uncover the top mistakes made with their resumes, cover letters, and LinkedIn® profiles based on recent feedback shared by recruiters and hiring decision-makers.
