A curriculum vitae (CV) and cover letter are key documents when applying to postdoc positions and academic jobs. An exceptional CV is more than just a list of your academic accomplishments; it allows you to market yourself to potential mentors and search committees as a compelling candidate. Academic cover letters are your opportunity to expand on your CV, tell your personal narrative, and convince the reader how you will add value to their department. In this workshop, you will learn how to craft compelling CVs and cover letters that emphasize how your specific skills and experiences will fit within and enrich academic institutions.
This event is part of the 2017-18 Academic Job Search Series, co-sponsored by The Graduate School, the Office of Postdoctoral Services and the Duke Career Center. Questions about this event? Contact the Career Center at (919) 660-1050.
