Hello and Welcome to COSTI's Resume Writing Online Course.

Here you can choose the level of resume you would like to start with. 

If this is your first resume, then you should start with "Writing Resumes" Self Directed workshop under our "Learn on your Own" menu. 

  However, if you have already created a resume and would like to make it appropriate to Canadian Employers, then take the "Writing a Strategic Resume" course.  They are both 1 week long and have an experienced e-facilitator available to answer any of your questions. 

If you are not sure where to start, ask us and we will be happy to help you to decide.
