Greenpoint Résumé Studio offers group webinars and on-site workshops (in the NYC area). Workshops are prepared based on a program's needs, and are tailored to meet the audience's goals and knowledge level. Usually, group sessions are geared towards graduating students and service corps members.

Most workshops last an hour, and some organizations elect to host a series of sessions based on their needs. Workshop rates are hourly, and we can work together to create customized sessions of varying lengths. Repeat sessions (i.e. those not requiring additional preparation) are billed at a lower rate. 

 

Workshops typically focus on the following:

Content:

  • Presenting your's as a unique narrative

  • Presenting the benefits rather than the features of your experience

  • Using evidence to vet your skill set

  • How to uncover and spotlight tacit competencies

Visual Appeal

  • Formatting techniques that highlight accomplishments and downplay flaws
  • Using classic designs effectively, and when to diverge
  • Using white space to your advantage, and ensuring continuity

Writing style:

  • Using telegraphic style, active voice, succinct vocabulary, key words, etc.
  • Using action verbs to portray accomplishments and responsibilities
 

Proposal Process

The process is initiated by submitting an inquiry here. Inquiries should be submitted by a school, network, or organization staff member. Please be sure to specify the audience at which the workshop will be aimed, and the number of attendees.

Once you submit an inquiry, I will be in contact within 48 hours to arrange a consultation to understand the needs of the audience. I'll listen to the outcomes you're hoping to accomplish, and we'll talk through the best ways to achieve those goals. During the proposal process, we'll set a timeline and revise the workshop content until you're satisfied it will meet your group's needs.

Professional Networks and Fellowships

Your members have had unique journeys in their professional lives, and it's difficult to portray such unique experiences and skill sets in a compelling way. Understanding all one's accomplished, and the ways in which they can apply that skill set in new contexts is integral to the storytelling process. Once those skills are unearthed, each participant will be equipped to leverage those experiences.

    College and Graduate School
     

    Among a graduating class of thousands across the country, finishing students face one of the most competitive job markets in the world. Students often have similar achievements, course loads, and degrees. University career centers offer the same advice to all their students, churning out résumé and CV clones; how can graduating students set themselves apart?

    By empowering individuals with the tools they need to spotlight their accomplishments and academic identity, Greenpoint Resume Studio teaches session attendees how to build their own "personal brand."
