Unsuck Your Resume

Whether you’re just getting starting in early childhood or contemplating switching programs, you need a resume that stands out: when was the last time you looked at yours? In this training, we’ll discuss how to cut the fluff, highlight what matters, and create a more concise resume that’s worth a second look – no matter how long you’ve been in the field or what kind of position you’re looking for. Expect time to be spent on both the content of your resume (the jobs you list, the key duties you write about them, how to note your education and proficiencies) and the composition (the formatting of text, the design elements), and at the end, you’ll feel ready to polish up (or redo!) your resume into eye-catching shape. We’ll also discuss some tricks for tailoring your resume to specific positions, easily entering your resume into online forms, and even a few job-search tips based on your career goals.

While we hope you attend our sessions for the content, we know certificates are important. A link to a short evaluation is shared at the end of each live on-line session. Complete this evaluation, and a personalized PDF certificate of participation is generated and emailed to you. In-service training requirements vary depending on location. Below, you’ll find info on where our certificates are currently accepted. We’re always working to gain approval in more locations.

United States


  • Alberta | We have been informed that Alberta does not have a pre-approval process and that our certificates contain the required information to be accepted as in-service training.
  • British Columbia | Explorations Early Learning was told that in BC, “professional development is assessed on a case by case basis after the workshop has been completed, and the certificate has been received.” Our certificates contain all the information required for approval, and our sessions cover topics that are traditionally approved.


We have not yet had time to dig into approval requirements for in-service trainings in any Australian states. It’s on the to-do list.
