Resume Storytelling Workshop

Event Date: 
Monday, October 18, 2021 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm
Location: 
OSU-Tulsa
Event Details: 

This workshop will be Monday, Oct. 18 from 7-9 p.m. at OSU-Tulsa.

The average recruiter spends 6 seconds reviewing a resume before deciding if an applicant is a good fit for the role. Is your resume doing a good job of attracting the attention of future employers? Is it giving insight into who you are as a person and what you are looking to accomplish? If not – then we can make your resume work a little harder to help you land that dream job.

A resume that tells a clear story is the key to success in the job search. However, most of us aren’t accustomed to telling stories through a single page filled with bullet points. This workshop will teach you the skills you need to summarize your experiences and weave your personal narrative into every line.

Each student will leave with personalized feedback that will turn them into the main character of their resume.

About the instructor

Saira Nadeem graduated from the University of Houston with a MFA in Fiction in 2019. Shortly afterwards, she gave birth to her first son – who looks like his father from Kentucky, but carries his Pakistani grandfather’s name. Her life has been a true testament to living between two different worlds and she shares many of these raw experiences through her stories. 

Before committing herself to writing, Saira taught undergraduate students how to sell at the #1 sales program in the nation. She has a knack for editing resumes and helping people land their dream jobs.  

Saira comes from a line of women that disobeyed the rules that were set for them and did not regret it. Because of this, her mission is to make a positive impact in the South Asian community by sparking conversation around cultural issues that disproportionately affect young girls.
