Description

Graduate Student Career Workshop: The What, Why, and How of Résumé and CV Writing

When you apply for jobs and internships, you need to be able to communicate your skills, experiences, and qualifications effectively to prospective employers; whether you use a résumé or curriculum vitae (CV) to do so depends on your career goals and the kinds of positions you seek. Join Graduate Student Life, University Career Services, and the Stearns Center for Teaching & Learning for a Graduate Student Career Development Workshop on résumé and CV writing. Learn what résumés and CVs are and how they differ, why you would use one or the other, how they are used in academic and non-academic hiring, and what you can do to craft the strongest document for your future job search.

Raechel Timbers, Associate Director of University Career Services, and Dr. Laura Lukes, Assistant Director of the Stearns Center, will provide an overview of résumés and CVs and lead break-out sessions so participants can learn the specifics of writing a résumé or CV and have an opportunity to write and/or peer review drafts. Please bring a draft of your résumé or CV, if you have one.

Please note: You will only be able to attend either the résumé writing or CV writing break-out session. If you are interested in learning about both documents, plan to attend one of these upcoming opportunities:

  • Résumé Clinic
    • Monday, October 2, 11:00am- 5:00pm, SUB 1, 3400
    • Tuesday, October 3, 1:00pm-7:00pm, SUB 1, 3400

Sponsored by Graduate Student Life, University Career Services, and Stearns Center for Teaching and Learning at George Mason University.
