10 Seconds to Impress

The Foundation of Your Career Toolkit

If you had 10 seconds to tell an employer about yourself, what would you choose to say and how would you convey it most effectively? Your resume must be organized, concise, and well designed.

It’s an important self-marketing piece, and you need it to stand out from dozens, even hundreds, of other resumes to grab a hiring manager’s attention — all in the time it takes for them to take a sip of coffee. No pressure, right?
Fortunately, Chapman University has the help you need to put together a resume that gets your foot in the door!
