Me too. The last one works best. I think Resume still needs to be in the title.

I should mention that "The Modern Resume" taken on its own is not very descriptive and that's what I [perhaps mistakenly] was referring to earlier. Sorry about the confusion there. "The Modern Resume - Building Your Brand" is a good title, especially since people interested in raising their profile are probably familiar with the concept of branding.

Thanks, Doug. Do you like "Building Your Brand" as the second part, or something else like "Learning to Market Yourself"?

Or "Learning to Build Your Brand"

Maybe something in between, like "Building Your [Market Presence/Marketability/Market Profile/Marketable Brand]", suggesting to build your brand will make you a top-tier job candidate. For some reason, the noun "market" is stuck in my head. Between the two choices offered earlier, I think I prefer "Learning to Market Yourself".

Then again, I could be splitting hairs here; the abstract tells the story well. People will probably click through regardless of which one you choose.

Gosh... I understand about the title but it still sounds like a class on how to write a resume rather than how to build a resume if you understand the distiction.

Without pre-knowledge of both the author and the subject matter, I have to say that I probably wouldn't even look at the abstract on seeing anything along the lines of "The Modern Resume" unless, of course, I was out of a job.

There's got to be another title for this wonderful session.
