Season Two !
RUNT is back in 2014 with three events to help raise your job search game:

The Great Resume Debate – PhotosFull Video
Tuesday, February 25th

What makes a great resume? It depends on who you ask, so we asked three seasoned creative recruiters what they thought. David Gurley of Wieden+Kennedy, Andy Shearer of adidas, and Rick Watson of Citizen described what they look for, what they dislike, and what each considers a “great” resume. They also shared their favorite “Hall of Shame” stories. Let’s hope your resume was not one of them.

Big Brands? Big Deal! – Tickets
Tuesday, May 20th

You hear it all the time. Portfolios showing big brand experience are better than those without. Big brands are cool right? They’re global after all, but does it really matter? And if it does, how do those of us without this experience overcome, or get it? We dispel the myths and expose who works at these big brands and how they got there. Leaders from Nike, Columbia, and adidas, all people just like you, tell all. Come hear their secrets.

That Bitch Ate My Lunch! – Tickets
Tuesday, August 26th

We’ve all been there. The lunch in the work fridge that disappeared. The coworker drenched in perfume, or the one who doesn’t believe in deodorant and probably should. With skits showing our most dreaded work experiences, we’ll help you sort through how to navigate the dreaded, the scary, and the nudity of what happens when we go to work and our lunch is gone.

You can also check out photos and full audio of last year’s RUNT event.
