Description. In today’s economic climate, job searching can be particularly difficult. Building a resume or C.V. that highlights your experience and skills as a unique candidate for a position is a vital first step in this process. But what do you do with all of your skills and experiences as a graduate student for a non-faculty position? Graduate students, perhaps more than any other group, need to know how to create a hybrid of a resume and CV, often called a functional CV for non-faculty positions and careers outside the academy to best highlight their experiences. Come learn about functional CVs from the ground up along with key elements and questions to consider in using one.
