Job Search Services Boston

FlexProfessionals offers workshops to support your job search efforts and career-focused meetups to connect with us and other job seekers.

Workshops are limited in size to maximize learning, group discussion, and information sharing. They are geared towards professionals who have taken a career break and professionals in career transition. All workshops are designed to provide practical job search resources and an opportunity for job seekers to meet and interact with FlexProfessionals staff.

Meetups are free and open networking sessions with a mini-workshop learning event. We hold regular meetups in Canton, Arlington and Burlington.

TWO-PART SERIES: DEVELOP A COMPELLING RESUME (PART I) & RESUME REVIEW (PART II)

Part I of this workshop consists of a morning of resume tips, strategies and best practices that will help you catch the attention of a hiring manager. We will break down the resume development process step by step, and you will leave this workshop with lots of concrete resources from which to write a compelling and current resume.

Part II of the workshop will take place one week later, allowing you time to work on your resume using strategies, tips and resources introduced in Part I of the workshop. Each participant will sign up for a 30 minute, in-person meeting to review their individual resume and discuss issues and concerns specific to their career story. You may come with a “final draft,” “work in progress,” or no resume at all.  We will discuss your skills, experiences and work preferences and make suggestions for how to best promote yourself in a resume format. Resume reviews will take place between 9:30 am and 2:00 pm. A link to a resume review sign-up schedule will be emailed to you a few days prior to the workshop, and review times will be confirmed at the workshop.
