Are you considering a career outside academia?  If so, you will need to convert your curriculum vitae (CV) into a resume, and this session will show you how.

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.
