Disability, Self-Identification, and Inclusive Workplace Culture – Webinars September 18 and 22

Text Size:+ | -

New regulations require that government contractors ask U.S. job applicants and employees to self-identify if they have a disability. How can employers build an inclusive workplace where people feel safe answering “yes” to this question? This month, EARN (Employer Assistance and Resource Network) will hold two webinars to address this important issue.

New research from The Conference Board shows what companies are doing today to build a disability-inclusive culture. Hear Prudential’s strategy for achieving this while also meeting the new federal requirements for government contractors.

Learn how companies are collecting information about the representation of people with disabilities in their applicant pool and workforce, strategies for building a disability-inclusive workplace, and how companies can increase the number of applicants and employees with disabilities who self-identify.

How To Name A Resume File

Text Size:+ | -

Resume File Names Matter

When you are emailing your resume or uploading it to a job board, it is important to name the file correctly. You might only have one file on your computer named “Resume.doc”, but the HR manager will have hundreds. Your resume could get lost, or even accidentally replaced by another file with the same name.

Instead, include your full name in the file name. If you are only applying for jobs in one field or profession, consider putting that in the file name as well. So, your resume file name might end up “John_Smith_Resume.doc”, or “Jame_Smith_Journalist_Resume.pdf.”

Finally, note those file extensions: .doc and .pdf. Unless the employer requests something different, those are the only two file types you should use. You don’t want to miss out on a job because you sent your resume in a file they can’t open!
