This month, I had the great pleasure of presenting to a CALM class at Strathmore High about resume writing.
I always look forward to speaking to people about their resume experience, sharing my thoughts on the topic after 10+ years in the resume writing business, and seeing what it’s like out there in the job world for current and future graduates.
Thank you to Ms. Visser and her students for having me, for listening and participating so actively, and for sharing all of your feedback on the following question: “Is this a guest speaker that you would recommend inviting in to speak to other classes? Why or why not?”
Some of the responses:

Proof you just can’t win ‘em all (especially if they’re 15)!
If you are a teacher looking for a guest presenter on this topic, please get in touch! The Resume Shop is has a 30-45 minute zoom lecture designed for “The High School Resume,” and I’d love to virtually visit your students, too:
