CV Writing Workshop, July 23

A special career development CV writing workshop will be held on Wednesday, July 23, from 12:00-1:00 in the Yellowstone Room with special guest Bob Dolan.

Your CV is used for the academic job search and in some cases for PhD’s seeking positions in industry or other research settings. This workshop will cover the important elements of crafting a successful CV, including strategies for how to effectively showcase your particular knowledge and experiences.  We will also discuss how to convert a 4-6 page CV into a 2-page resume for industry.

This event is open to all and no registration is required.
