How to Improve Your Brand: 10 Tips for Stronger Resume Branding :
YWR appreciates individuals that understand that many of our young women are not totally prepared for the evolving of the new job market.

If it's been several years since many of our members revisited their resume, or if you're one of those lucky people who never needed a resume, you may not be aware of how much resumes have changed in the past several years. YWR is in need of an individual that would be able to support our young women in preparing them for the competitive world that there in today.
YWR wants them working on their resume, re-think how to update it, so that they can create a career marketing document that will optimally do its job – land the interviews.
