A resume can be a powerful tool, but there is often a disconnect between what a job candidate thinks is being communicated on their resume and how hiring managers interpret the information being presented. This results in companies missing out on hiring some great talent, and job seekers missing out on excellent opportunities. In this Uplift Kitsap, professional resume writer Tina Callison helps bridge that gap by identifying places on a resume where disconnect happens and exploring how both job candidates and hiring managers can improve their use of resumes.

More and more it’s about gigs, not careers, and projects, not jobs. What does this mean for your business and our community? How will YOU take advantage of the new economy?

Lots of fancy words…but KBF regulars know Jan Harrison informs with sharp, sassy commentary. This August, join Kitsap colleagues and learn how you fit in The Gig Economy.

Key Takeaways
