PLAN Workshop- Workshopping the Resume

Description. Whether you're going on the job market next year or in four years, it's not too early to start thinking about your resume. Non-faculty positions both inside and outside the academy often require a resume as opposed to a CV. There are some key differences between CVs and resumes, and being able to craft your resume to meet a job description is key.  This workshop will briefly review the basics of effective resume writing and provide an opportunity to receive feedback about your own resume. Bring two hard copies of your current version to be workshopped. And even if your resume isn’t polished, no worries: now is a great time to start! Bring whatever you have and take advantage of this supportive context to get your materials on the right track.

Learning Outcomes. As a result of this session, participants will be able to: 

1. Identify effective and ineffective ways of representing experiences on resume

2. Consider how to translate their own experiences and activities into an effective resume

3. Provide and receive feedback with other workshop participants
