Under the HURKO lecture series, the Resume Refresh Workshop for 2023 was held in collaboration with SICSR E-cell, IEEE student branch, and Office and Placements. Shruti Mishra (Anchor 1) and Samarth Minocha (Anchor 2) opened the workshop by welcoming everyone to the event. During the event, Dr. Prafulla B. Bafna, assistant professor at Symbiosis Institute for Computer Studies and Research, was also introduced. 

Dr. Sneha Sharma, a certified training and development coach with 11 years of experience, then welcomed everyone to the session and discussed the purpose of a resume, which is to stand out and get a job interview. She went on to explain the proper resume format, which is 11 to 12 font sizes with a 1 inch margin on all four sides and single or 1.15 line spacing. She also went over the proper file format for both physical resumes and online submissions. 

Dr. Sharma then went over the seven most important things to consider when creating an ideal resume. Contact information, resume profile (resume summary vs. resume objective), work experience, education, skills, extracurricular activities, and others are examples (hobbies, interests,

languages). She went on to emphasise the significance of creating an ATS-friendly resume that includes relevant skills, experience, and qualifications for the job. 

Sanket Kurdukar, placement officer at Symbiosis Institute of Computer Studies and Research, presented the vote of thanks at the event’s conclusion. He thanked Dr. Sharma for sharing his valuable insights. The anchor, Samarth Minocha, then expressed gratitude to all participants for their active participation, as well as the student branch members for effectively organising the event. 

Overall, the Resume Refresh Workshop for 2023 provided valuable insights into developing a professional and effective resume that can assist individuals in standing out in the job market. The workshop was well-organized and informative, and the speakers offered helpful tips and advice on how to write a successful resume.
