Why you can’t convert your CV to a resume
April 19 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
PhDs and Postdocs often approach resume writing as a self-reflective exercise, simply translating their academic accomplishments from a CV into a two-page resume. But this is the wrong approach.
A resume is actually a persuasive document designed to convince a hiring manager to contact you for an interview. An effective resume then, is one that focuses less on your list of accomplishments and more on describing how you can help meet the needs of an employer.
Join the Beyond the Professoriate team to learn how you can draft an effective resume, while avoiding common mistakes we see PhDs make.
This virtual workshop is uniquely designed for doctoral students, PhDs, and postdocs from all academic disciplines who are wondering:
- Why I can’t just convert my academic CV into a resume for professional jobs?
- What should I include in my professional resume?
- What are nonacademic employers going to be looking for in my resume?
- How can I effectively talk about all of my skills and value to employers in a 2-page resume?
