Bryant & Stratton College Online Hosts Webinar: What Type of Resume is Best?

January 10 webinar will teach job seekers about the different types of resume formats, how to know when to use them and practical resume tips

Buffalo, NY, December 20, 2013 – The average recruiter spends about six seconds looking at a single resume, according to a study by The Ladders. That means job seekers have six seconds to highlight their skills and expertise, making the format of a resume as important as the content. For that reason, Bryant & Stratton College Online announced today a new session in its career information webinar series titled “What Type of Resume is Best for You?” The webinar will be held on Friday, January 10 from noon to 1 p.m. EST.

During the “What Type of Resume is Best for You?” webinar, attendees will learn practical tips and advice to improve their resume. Some of the topics covered in the webinar will include:

* The difference between chronological, functional, skills based and combination resumes

* When to use each type of resume

* How to take a resume from responsibility-focused to success-focused

* Dos and Don’ts of resume writing

The webinar will be led by Cindy Carpenter and Albanitza Mayoliz who handle recruiting at Verizon for the Call Center and Retail Sales Channel, respectively. Ms. Carpenter and Ms. Mayoliz are responsible for reviewing applications and qualifications, identifying quality candidates, coordinating interviews, extending offers and on boarding new hires. Both women are experienced recruiters with extensive knowledge in recruiting practices, talent acquisition, on boarding, hiring, career fairs, resume writing and career advancement and social media.

“There is an art to putting together a resume that most job seekers underestimate. A typical recruiter may have to sort through hundreds, or even thousands, of resumes to fill a position. A strong resume needs to communicate quickly and concisely why a job seeker deserves to be considered for a position. To do that sometimes requires deviating from the standard chronological format,” said Ms. Carpenter.

The “What Type of Resume is Best for You?” career information webinar is offered for free by Bryant & Stratton College Online and is open to current students, prospective students and others seeking information about how to write a resume. Those interested in attending are invited to register at

“Career preparation is an integral part of what we provide students at Bryant & Stratton College Online. The career information webinar series has been a successful way to educate students not only on how to do a job, but also on how to get a job. We are grateful that Ms. Carpenter and Ms. Mayoliz have offered to share their expertise with job seekers,” said Scott Traylor, Campus Director for Online Education at Bryant & Stratton College.
