Effect of a Resume-Writing Workshop on Resume-Writing Skills
Tillotson, Kenyon; Osborn, Debra
Journal of Employment Counseling, v49 n3 p110-117 Sep 2012
What is the best way to teach someone how to write an effective resume? A workshop format was used to teach college students the skills needed to write a successful resume. Archival data consisting of student resumes and rubric score sheets were used to determine the effectiveness of a resume-writing workshop by using a pre-post design evaluating student resumes. The authors used a rubric to produce quantitative data for comparison purposes. Participants' postworkshop resume rubric scores were significantly higher than their scores were before attending the workshop. The authors offer possible explanations for the results and make suggestions for future research. (Contains 1 table.)
