The brothers of Phi Kappa Sigma hosted an interview skills and resume-building workshop led by Scott Ford ’85 on Saturday, March 31. Ford, the Human Resource Manager for University Circle Inc. in Cleveland, Ohio, has offered this workshop in conjunction with the fraternity for several years. About a dozen students attended, including non-fraternity members. Ford advised students to use active phrasing and tailor resumes for individual positions.
“[Ford] provided valuable insights as to how to sell yourself instead of listing all the things that you do [on your resume],” New Member Educator for Phi Kappa Sigma Tommy Brown ’13 said.
This workshop differed from workshops the Career Development Office offers, according to Brown. “[Ford] is not a career counselor. He is not a guy that is doing this for his job; he is doing it because of his job,” he said. “He is doing it from his own experience because this is something he has been doing for over 20 years.”
