Description. Our generation faces a competitive job market, which means we must find a way to make ourselves stand out to get our first position after graduation. Whether you hope to land an academic appointment or hope to work outside of the university, it’s never too early to start thinking about what you can bring to the table beyond the training you’ve received in your graduate program. Whether you’re unsure what your transferable skills are or you’re unsure how to feature them during your job search, this workshop is for you!
Learning Outcomes. As a result of this session, participants will:
1. identify transferable skills that they possess.
2. reflect on their graduate experience and identify skills they have developed and wish to refine.
3. learn how to showcase their unique skills on a resume or CV.
Presenters. Meaghan Dill, Kenzie Adriance, and Caitlyn Walsh are Masters-level students in the College Student Personnel Program at UofL. The three of them have combined their practical experiences to create a program aiming to assist graduate students from all departments and levels of study in identifying, developing, and marketing their transferable skills.
