Tuesday, February 3, 2015

Are you considering a career outside of academia?  If so, you will need to convert your curriculum vitae (CV) into a resume, and this session will show you how. In addition to learning the differences between an academic CV and a resume, you will learn specific steps and strategies to help you craft a resume that effectively promotes your qualifications in a way that appeals to a broad audience. Topics include:

  • Describing your skills and experiences in a way that translates across disciplines, industries, and career fields.
  • Tailoring and organizing your information with the reader in mind.
  •  Choosing the right format, layout, and style.
