Converting Your CV to a High-Impact Resume

Tuesday, October 27, 2015
10:00 am to 11:30 am

Are you considering a career outside of academia?  If so, you will need to convert your curriculum vitae (CV) into a résumé, and this session will show you how. In addition to learning the differences between an academic CV and a résumé, you will learn specific steps and strategies to help you craft a résumé 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.
