Did you ever wonder what goes on behind-the-scenes of your job search? As you prepare to graduate and enter the world of IT, many technology professionals lack the understanding and thus make mistakes that impact their ability to land a job. This session will talk about ways to optimize your resume, ace your interviews, utilize LinkedIn, work with recruiters and find the job of your dreams! Brad Wilkins is the Director of Talent Management for Adcap Network Systems, a Gold Cisco Partner who last year was awarded the "Cisco Partner of the Year" as well as a UMD alumni. Brad received resumes and interviews thousands of Engineers and other IT professionals every year and wants to make sure his fellow Terps don't make the same mistakes he sees everyday!
