Are you a Masters of PhD student considering transitioning out of academia and wondering how to translate your academic CV into an impactful non-academic résumé? This interactive workshop will describe the different uses and formats of these two documents, and will provide you with strategies to highlight the transferable skills gained from your own personal teaching and research experience. You will also learn how to organize, frame and format your document to maximize your impact. Participants are encouraged to bring their most recent academic CV and will leave with a draft outline of their résumé. The workshop will be led by Sarah Lyon and Beth Hanneman (Stuckert Career Center). Students should feel free to come late or leave early if needed.
