Webinar: The Power of the Infographic Resume

Webinar: The Power of the Infographic Resume

Wednesday, February 1, 2017 -

7:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Take advantage of this free webinar offered to you by the University of Alumni Association!

Hannah Morgan will focus on resumes.

Getting noticed as a standout candidate for a job isn’t easy. That’s why you’ll want to use an infographic resume.

An infographic visually simplifies complex information. Now apply this logic to a resume. Job seekers and careerists can use the power of visuals to capture the attention of future hiring managers. While an infographic resume does not replace traditional text version of the resume... yet, it is a growing trend to explore. Imagine presenting one during a networking meeting or during an interview. It definitely has a Wow factor.

This presentation will help you identify what infographic-worthy information to highlight. We’ll also discuss the benefits and draw-backs of infographics, who can use them and how, as well as tools to create infographics.

 
You will walk away with a better understanding of:
 
    • How to use the right infographic elements to showcase talent.
    • How to use color, fonts and more to convey personal brand
    • Free and for-fee resources to create powerful infographics
    • Pros and Cons of infographic resumes
    • Who should use one and how.

Webinar: Your True Colors

Webinar: Your True Colors

Wednesday, February 8, 2017 -

7:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Take advantage of this free webinar offered to you by the University of Northern Iowa Alumni Association.

Catherine Shovlin will focus on career exploration.

We are surrounded by color - yet not everybody realises that our minds and bodies are constantly reacting to it. That means that the colors you wear, the colors you live around and the colors of your logo, business card, website and packaging all matter.
 
In this webinar Catherine, author of "Your True Colors" will draw on 25 years of experience of color psychology to introduce you to to some of the core concepts. You will find out
 
    • what color psychology is and why it matters
    • how it is applied in branding, interior design and personal clothing choices
    • In the process of explaining this, Catherine will also share some specific information such as which color in your study could help you learn better
    • how even blind people respond to color
    • and the use of color as a sales predictor for DVDs
 
If you would rather have color working for you than against you, then this webinar is for you.
