Resume Review

For the fourth year, APCO International is pleased to offer attendees the opportunity to have their resumes professionally reviewed complimentarily.

The session was more than expected and the feedback I received was right on … things that were pointed out and discussed I can implement immediately to keep my resume fresh and noticeable. The customer service was impeccable from scheduling, rescheduling, checking in and the session itself was top notch and very professional. Thank you for providing this service and allowing me to have another pair of eyes look at my resume.

Your resume is frequently your first and only chance to make a great impression to a prospective employer. Hiring managers often scan your resume for just 10 seconds to see if you’re right for the job. Don’t get overlooked ever again — have your resume critiqued by HR professionals in public safety … for free!

On Monday, August 12 and Tuesday, August 13, two career counselors from Baltimore City Fire Department Human Resources Office will be available to provide individual feedback and tips on how to enhance your resume and help you advance in your career. Each counselor will review resumes in a private and confidential setting on:

  • Monday, August 12: 10:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
  • Tuesday, August 13: 10:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
I have been a dispatcher for 21 years and finding that I am at the end of my career but still in need of employment. My goal was to get tips on how to translate my law enforcement resume to the real world. As it happened I learned of a potential job on my way to conference so I was able to bring in the job flyer with my resume. We made use of every minute available and by the end I had some great notes for updating my resume as well as great feedback on my qualifications for the job. It can be very difficult to translate our skills into real world jobs and the feedback I received was great.

Reserve your appointment today, as spots fill up fast.

Each appointment is for 20 minutes and the feedback will be well worth it.

At the discretion of the Resume Reviewers “walk-ins” may be seen after those with an appointment. A black and white printer will be available; however, it is highly recommended to bring a hard copy of your resume to maximize your 20-minute session.
