what is the page we go to find the career center?
Jennifer Walker
25:47
so no templates? no "fancy" layouts? that is going contrary to what I've been seeing in doing online searches!
Vivian L
26:00
Takes you 6 seconds to understand what is written out
Christina Dance
28:03
Is sans sarif still the best font type?
Christina Dance
28:16
Thanks:)
Jennifer Walker
30:02
What if we don't know our expected date of graduation?
Vivian L
30:32
Technical question - but do we have to list out “expected graduation date” and then the date? Or would just the date suffice?
Christina Dance
32:34
So "objective" has been replaced with "qualification highlights"?
Jennifer Walker
32:58
I've heard a summary statement is being used now?
Christina Dance
33:31
Thank you:)
Jennifer Walker
34:53
the qualification highlights look similar to "summary statements" I've seen. But this section is called "qualification" as opposed to summary?
Jennifer Walker
35:37
ok thanks
Christina Dance
36:08
Wow, no cover letter unless asked for! Good to know!
Laney Humphrey
36:48
What if you do not have any related experience?
Laney Humphrey
37:04
As if it is the first MLIS position you will take?
Christina Dance

53:49
or to heavy
Vivian L
54:00
No periods
Christina Dance
58:14

thanks!
Amanda Fairchild, FGS Blog Editor
01:08:46
Where do you put student or professional organizations you’re involved in? Also, what if we were in a student group in high school, over 10 years ago, is there a time cut-off for certain items?
Christina Dance
01:08:50
we in Texas say it all the time:)
Tiffany
01:08:58
Are you available on Linked In?
Tonya Walker
01:10:20
I apologize for coming here late, but how do I cover huge gaps in my resume. For instance, what type of resume functional or chronological, and how do I cover the nearly 10 year gap in employment since I retired after the military and decided to return to the workforce by becoming a librarian.
Amanda Fairchild, FGS Blog Editor
01:10:24
OK, thanks!
Jennifer Hankins
01:11:14
What is the appropriate time frame for experience? Especially for those of us that are changing careers?
Christina Dance
01:12:31
Good questions Jennifer.
Tonya Walker
01:12:34
Thank you, and I will contact you for more information so I can provide my unique details.
Patty
01:12:52
I am 6 months into my 3 year plan and not currently employed and don't think I will work during this time at school, volunteer or intern only. I want to start working on a resume now and keep it updated during school in case the right job comes along and to have it ready on graduation. Can I work with you for 2-1/2 years on this?
Christina Dance
01:13:39
If you worked 7 different roles in a single company over 15 years, what is the best way to list the experience?
Patty
01:14:10
can we talk to you on the phone as well?
Christina Dance
01:15:38
