Make Your Resume and Cover Letter Stand Out from the Crowd!
Scott Derrick, Senior Consultant, Spelman Johnson
Whether you are actively seeking a promotion or new position, or if you’re just coming back to the job market after a number of years, your resume and cover letter are still the primary tools in your toolbox that can get your foot in the door to be considered further by employers. In this session, we will discuss some of the best practices in crafting a resume and cover letter. We will also take a peek behind the curtain at some pitfalls to avoid along the way, in an effort to help you stand out and be noticed by hiring managers.

Career Center - Hiring Best Practices

The New Dynamics of Video Interviews
Mark Hall, Vice President and Senior Consultant, Spelman Johnson
Video conferencing with multiple participants, across multiple remote locations, has become essential to moving searches forward during the COVID-19 pandemic. The dynamics of these video conversations are significantly different than the more traditional video interviews, in which committee members are all in the same room. Institutions are represented in all interactions with candidates and putting the best foot forward is part of selling the opportunity to highly-qualified candidates. We will discuss guidelines to ensure successful interactions between the candidates and campus stakeholders.

Mitigating Implicit Bias and Ensuring Inclusivity in the Search Process
Michel Frendian, Consultant, Spelman Johnson
At a time when colleges and universities are reevaluating and refocusing efforts to create more diverse and inclusive teams and environments, search committees, as a significant part of the hiring process, must be armed with knowledge of implicit bias and how it can impede the advancement of equal opportunity and access goals. Designed for auxiliary services and human resource professionals, this session will highlight common biases in the search process and discuss strategies for alleviating their impact. Participants will articulate the importance and value of diversity, equity, and inclusion within organizations; identify common biases present in the hiring process; and develop concrete strategies to mitigate bias in future search processes.
