The objective of this course is to introduce the Myers-Briggs Personality Inventory as another mirror or source of information about our personal preferences for life and work.  You will have an opportunity to reflect on personal preferences and put them together to form your type.  Investigating the different types, you will be asked to compare this new information with the information you have about yourself from your Vision Board and Accomplishment Stories/Skills and Strengths courses.  Finally, you will be asked to use this information to focus/funnel in on the question:  “What do I want to do for work?”

In this course, you will create a database of your life experiences and corresponding skills, strengths and accomplishments that can be transferred to meet the needs of an employer or volunteer agency.  You will be able to use this database to customize a resume and cover letter for a job.  It’s like gathering all our seeds, sorting them, and choosing specific combinations for planting in a resume.


There are two main objectives for the resume course: a) to write clearly about your transferable skills and b) to create a resume and cover letter that you feel good about.
