Academic Job Market Writing Success Series: C.V. Workshop

Tue, Jul 09, 1:30 PM - 03:00 PM
/ Location: SRB ​Multipurpose Room


The resume is a staple of job applications, but academia works a bit differently. Instead of the resume, academic jobs request a C.V. While there are similarities between the two, you need to know how they differ and what goes into a strong C.V. You may be the best candidate for a job, but if you do not have a well-organized C.V. that reflects your skills and qualifications, then you're likely to get lost in the application pile. This is just as true for other academic contexts (grants!, grants!, grants!) where a C.V. is requested to determine your qualifications. So how do you distill your entire academic and professional career into one document?

Continuing ​this ​summer's Academic Job Market Writing ​Success Series, we will explore C.V.s: what they are, what they look like, and how to write them ​for the job that you are applying for. Participants will learn what the major sections of a C.V. include and how to tailor a ​C.V. to specific positions (e.g., a teaching-focused position versus a research-oriented one). Should time permit, we will also workshop our C.V.s with each other, so bring a draft of C.V. if you have one!

When: ​Tuesday, July ​9th, 1:30–3 p.m.
SRB ​​Multipurpose Room
RSVP here but drop-ins are welcome!
