Description. Whether you're going on the market next year or in four years, it's not too early to start thinking about your CV. Academic and functional CVs not only present your research, teaching and service to potential employers, it is also an important part of other grant and award applications. This workshop will briefly review the basics of effective CV writing and provide an opportunity to receive feedback about your own CV. Bring two hard copies of your current version to be workshopped. And even if your C.V. or 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. Attendees will:
-Identify effective and ineffective ways of representing experiences on a C.V. or resume
-Consider how to translate their own experiences and activities into an effective C.V. or resume
-Provide and receive feedback with other workshop participants
Presenter. Dr. Beth Boehm, Dean of the School of Interdisciplinary and Graduate Studies and English faculty.
