ATLANTA (AP) -- State Labor Commissioner Mark Butler says the Georgia Department of Labor is launching a month-long effort to help job seekers improve their chances for employment that focuses on resumes.

The program is called ResuMAY. Under the program, the department will provide resources including a live on-line chat scheduled for May 25 devoted to resumes, a series of new on-line resume-writing podcasts, and new on-line resources and marketing materials for job seekers to download.

Local career centers and other one-stop centers will offer resume-writing services. Some activities include workshops, employer-led feedback discussions, resume contests, and one-on-one resume sessions. ResuMAY is targeted to general job seekers, older workers, professionals and long-term unemployed.
