Curious About Supervision – Part Two: The Resume

July 20, 2021 @ 12:00 pm 1:00 pm

Register for this one-hour webinar.

Regardless of how long you have worked in libraries, applying for a promotion to supervisor requires shifting your priorities and looking at your accomplishments with fresh eyes.

Part two of this two-part series will cover everything you need to know about creating a successful resume. We will focus on how your cover letter, resume, and application should reflect successful experience with managing your workplace relationships, including managing conflicts, projects, deadlines, budgets, and maintaining agreed-upon quality. We will look at why it is a mistake to focus only on your professional and technical skills, such as reference, cataloging, IT, YA and children’s services, etc.

Although we can’t provide individual feedback, you can submit your cover letter and resume to Pat Wagner (pat@patternresearch.com) by July 15. She will review your documents and include her impressions and real examples, anonymously of course, in the content of this webinar.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:
• Be able to identify the three types of resumes–chronological, skills-oriented, and accomplishment-oriented–and create resumes of each type.
• Be able to improve cover letters, resumes, and applications for a supervisory job by including both the project management and interpersonal skills sets of successful supervisors.
• Be able to customize a cover letter for a specific library employer by researching their strategic plan and the events highlighted on their website.

This webinar will be of interest to: Library employees interested in career advancement and workplaces coaches helping employees apply for their first supervisory promotion.
