PLAN Workshop - Building Your Resume

Description. Having a useful, effective, and strong resume is absolutely vital for graduate students pursuing a job outside of the academy, and often useful for graduate students only interested in faculty life. But how do you begin? Whether you have only a basic template, a full C.V., or just need to refresh your resume, this is the workshop to attend. Come learn about the differences between a C.V. and a resume, key components, and strategies and tips to make you stand out among a large group of applicants. Graduate students who attend will have time to workshop their resumes during the session, so you are encouraged to bring a device on which to work. 

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

1. Learn the context for resumes and the differences between a resume and a C.V. 

2. Review the main elements of a strong resume

3. Outline strategies and tips for improving their resume

4. Workshop their resume.
