Workshop Description: Crafting Your CV & Resume
A CV/resume provides the first impression of a candidate to a potential employer. The content of your document should quickly grab the reader's interest, and the format must deliver information clearly and concisely. To make it even more challenging, you need to summarize the highlights of your career in just a few pages. This interactive workshop will cover the basics of crafting your CV and tips for tailoring your Resume to specific job opportunities. Please note: this is an interactive workshop, participants are expected to submit a draft of their CV or resume to the office by the Friday before the workshop.
Please upload a copy of your most recent CV/Resume by 3pm on Thursday, October 15.
