Online Doc Resume Review Service

by Elizabeth Jastrab on Sat, Oct 21, 2017 at 06:17 pm

Committee Charge

Committee Charge

The Resume Review Service Committee gives NMRT members an opportunity to have their resumes and/or cover letters reviewed via e-mail by experienced professionals in the field. In addition, the Committee provides on-site resume reviewing for job seekers in a booth at the ALA Placement Center at Annual and Midwinter conferences. Due to the demands of providing an on-site service, all committee members are required to volunteer a total of 4 hours at the on-site service. Committee members can distribute these required hours across Midwinter and/or Annual as their schedule allows.

History of the Committee

The idea for a resume review service for NMRT members arose in the Mentoring Committee in 1996-1997. At the NMRT Exec Board meeting during the 1997 Midwinter Meeting Mich Nelson and Emerita Cuesta of the Mentoring Committee discussed their idea for a resume review service to be coordinated by their committee.

The board directed the committee to further develop the idea and report back at the Annual Conference. At June 28, 1997 Executive Board Meeting, Alesia MacManus, chair of the Self-Study, Resource Allocation Committee (SSRAC) again recommended a resume review service to be administered by the Mentoring Committee.

Over the next year, the Mentoring Committee decided that a resume review service was beyond the scope of its charge and suggested that another committee be created to provide the service. At the 1998 Midwinter Meeting, the idea of a separate committee was again taken up by the board and it voted to create an ad hoc committee to begin a pilot project of resume review by mail. Paula Hering became the committee's first chair and served in this role for two years. In her first final report, Herring reported that eleven resumes had been reviewed.

Ten resumes were reviewed the following year. The conference reviewing service, the result of a collaboration of ALA's Office of Human Resource Development and Recruitment and NMRT, debuted at the Annual Conference in Chicago in 2000 and was coordinated by Suzanne Sprague. The committee became a standing committee by board vote on July 7, 2000.

Major Responsibilities

1. Maintain a year-round resume reviewing service (primarily via e-mail) in which job seekers’ documents are sent to appropriate reviewers who make comments and return these documents within a reasonable amount of time.

2. Recruit and maintain a roster of resume reviewers.

3. Secure space in the Placement Center to be used for the following purposes:

  • One-on-one resume reviewing
  • Distribution of information about NMRT

  • Provide a relaxing and friendly environment for weary job seekers.

4. Recruit NMRT members and resume reviewers to staff the booth and provide resume reviewing at the Placement Center at Annual and Midwinter Conferences.

5. Arrange for booth supplies to be shipped to the conference location.

6. Set up and dismantle the Placement Center booth at the beginning and end of conferences.

7. Prepare an attractive display of handout materials and supplies at the booth.

8. Review resume and cover letter tip sheets and revise as needed.

9. Maintain and develop committee web site as needed.
