Episode #24: Anne Burns - Founder - Right the Resume
Anne Burns, Founder of Right the Resume joins Hiring University to share best practices on resume writing and presentation. Anne has worked with job-seeking candidates ranging from entry-level to C-Level executives. Her work is as much about personal development and awareness as it is about grammar and editing. This is a must-listen episode for anyone preparing to look for their next job opportunity.
"When it comes to writing resumes, most of us are self-conscious. When you are talking about yourself organically there's a natural flow, just like any other conversation. You can be at a dinner party and somebody says, "What do you do?" and so you give your regular response. If they've got more questions, then it's very easy to have that back and forth and answer those direct questions. But when you have to put it on a piece of paper, it makes it very real - which can be scary to think about, let alone write."

Episode #22: Kyle Moschetto - Director of Solutions Architecture - SADA
Kyle Moschetto, Director of Solutions Architecture at SADA, joins Hiring University! to share his experience hiring and training future cloud computing experts from a variety of backgrounds and in particular military veterans. Kyle served 11 years in the Marines as a Cyber Network Operations Officer then joined the private sector leading technical teams, designing agile network and service architectures, growing cloud-based capabilities, and security-focused IT operations in high-stress situations at industry-leading companies including F5, Bitly and Google before joining SADA, the preeminent Google Cloud systems integrator.
“I have conversations with Marine veterans all the time as they are entering the workforce after serving in the military and wondering how their technical skills will translate to the private sector and what cloud provider they should focus on. And what I say to them is, do you need to pick one of the big three. You don't need to, but should you, yeah, you probably should. And there are no wrong answers here, right? Pick Microsoft Azure, pick Amazon's AWS, pick Google cloud platform. It doesn't matter. Just pick one, because if you learn one, it's really easy to learn another.”
- Kyle Moschetto
