This workshop is designed to help social sciences and humanities graduate students and post-docs transition an academic CV into an effective resume for jobs in industry and nonprofits. We will examine differences in the genres and identify transferable skills employers want. Students will learn to decipher job postings and to craft a tailored resume to target specific positions. Please bring 2 copies of your CV as well as any resume you have drafted. Students will receive peer feedback on how to transition their CVs into resumes.
