        March 21 webinar will show prospective students and job seekers how to create a
                    resume that grabs employers’ attention in 30 seconds

BUFFALO, NY (March 14, 2012) – Bryant & Stratton College Online, a leader in online
associate’s degree programs, will host a free webinar for current and prospective students
who are seeking tips on writing a better resume. The webinar, titled “Writing Effective
Resumes,” will be held on Wednesday, March 21, from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. EDT. The
webinar will cover a variety of topics that will help attendees make their resume stand out
during the job search process.

Job seekers who attend the webinar will learn the do’s and don’ts of preparing an effective
resume. Other highlights from the free event include:

   •   Understanding resumes as a marketing tool for “brand you”
   •   The basic sections of a resume and what each section should communicate about a
       job applicant
   •   How to identify key strengths to include in a resume and stand out to employers
   •   How to integrate keywords into a resume to ensure the content matches what
       employers are looking for

The webinar will be presented by Dr. Kristina Nelson, Online Instructor at Bryant & Stratton
College. Dr. Nelson has taught online for over ten years. She earned an M.A. and B.A. in
English literature and composition from California State San Bernardino, an M.A. in history
from American Public University, an M.S. in psychology from California Coast and a
doctorate in educational technology from Northcentral University.

“Resumes are personal advertisements to that should get potential employers excited about
the product, in this case the job applicant. Research shows that recruiters only spend about
30 seconds scanning a resume before placing it in a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ pile, so today’s candidates
have to ensure their resume gives a good impression immediately,” said Dr. Nelson. “Too
many job seekers today view their resume as a tool for highlighting what makes them
great, but a resume should focus on the potential employer and what a candidate can do to
add to their business. This webinar will teach students and job seekers to view the resume
and application process from the employer’s perspective.”

Current and prospective students interested in learning how to write an effective resume are
