How one college went from 10% female computer-science majors to 40%

How one college went from 10% female computer-science majors to 40% | Career Services | Scoop.it
Yes, we know there aren’t enough women in tech. Yes, we know we need to change the ratio. One college has found the answer. With a three-step method, Harvey Mudd College in California quadrupled its female computer science majors. The experiment started in 2006 when Maria Klawe, a computer scientist and mathematician herself, was appointed college president. That...

Cruise Line Class's curator insight, March 26, 2014 8:09 AM

There was a time not so long ago when things were simpler, before the internet, iPads or smart phones were around.  Back then a resume was just that …a resume. The task of putting together a resume was not a headache. 

 

The goal was simple:  to document job history in a simple to read one page format.   

 

 So what has changed in 20 years?  Just about everything!

 

 The good news...it doesn't have to be so confusing or difficult.  Just  look at your resume like part of your wardrobe.   You have different resumes for different purposes, just as you have different clothes for different occasions.  

 

If you think of your resume like part of your wardrobe, it will help you to understand that there is a place and time for every outfit in your closet.  In your wardrobe you proabably have bathing suits, shorts, jeans, and suits.  For every important ocassion you may spend time to carefully select the perfect outfit that is the right fit for the event.

 

It is the same way with resumes.  You need to repackage your knowledge, skills, experience, strengths, and accomplishments in a way that make it easy for the hiring manager to determine that your resume (like an outfit) is a right fit for the position and the company.  You can do that by making sure that you dress up your resume with the knowledge, skills, experience, strengths, and accomplishments that the company is looking for.

 

I hope this helps a bit.  Until next time!

 

PS - Live on Purpose!

Canadian Vocational Association / Association canadienne de la formation professionnelle's curator insight, November 5, 2013 9:18 AM

67% of respondents in the manufacturing industry are reporting a moderate to severe shortage of available, qualified workers and 56% anticipating the shortage to grow worse in the next three to five years. In addition, the report indicates that 5% of current jobs at respondent manufacturers are unfilled due to a lack of qualified candidates. These results underscore the tenacity of a worsening talent shortage that threatens the future effectiveness of the manufacturing industry.
