Hello im a VISTA in the middle of my year of service and am trying to prepare for my next adventure in life! I'm trying to update my resume with the experience i'm gaining from this year of service. There was a webinar offered for this, but unfortunately I was unable to participate. Does anyone have any advice, tips, info, pointers etc.??

Keep looking for it on the Webinars for VISTA page accessed by the "Ongoing Learning" button found beneath the VISTA Events calandar. This webinar address just this question and more. I hope you can wait for it.

I am very glad that there are such courses. I recently found a website about writing a resume. I liked it. I understood the basic rule. You have to write the whole truth
