Leadership Corner - James Stofan
The Office of Alumni Relations is making available to you a free, secure resume-building website. Called Optimal Resume, this website will allow you to quickly and easily create world-class resumes and receive expert advice on interviewing prep, cover letters and more. This is a best-of-breed software with robust tools. It’s hosted in the cloud, so it’s available to you 24/7. You’ll find examples of resumes, cover letters and electronic portfolios along with the tools to create your own. Coaching and examples for all levels and professions are built in along with a video interview option that allows you to record and play back your mock interview. Finally, you can create your own professional website with the online media widgets.
Look for the unveiling of this service in the coming weeks, and let us know what you think of the service once it’s up and running. The Office of Alumni Relations and the Vanderbilt Alumni Association are continuing to look for ways to support alumni with professional development. Keep an eye on our LinkedIn site as well as the VUconnect online community. If you have any job opportunities available, please help out your fellow Commodores and let us know and we’ll post those jobs online.
