Converting Your CV to a Resume
Wednesday November 13th, 2019
11:30 AM - 1:30 PM
6201 Microbial Sciences Building
Workshop for postdocs only.
The CV used for academic jobs will not work anywhere else. Resume readers in industry will have totally different expectations than an academic search committee. Specifically, they will expect you to highlight your most impactful individual initiatives and show how those achievements will also produce material and measurable positive outcomes for them. They will need these achievements to be described in pithy and memorable sentences designed to convince them you are worth the time for an initial interview.
In this workshop, we will learn how to write authentic resumes and LinkedIn profiles that highlight your potential to positively impact the organizations you want to work for. The workshop will be facilitated by Andrew Cusick, Career Development Officer, Office of Postdoctoral Studies.
