Resume Workshop- Get Ready for Grad School

4 Feb

Need to develop your undergraduate CV/Resume for use in scholarship, fellowship, research opportunities, or graduate school applications? Attend the upcoming CV Writing Workshop:
Thursday, Feb. 19, 2009, 3:00-4:30pm, Mary Gates Hall room 211 (Honors Program Seminar room).

A Curriculum Vitae (“CV” or “vitae”) is a comprehensive, biographical statement emphasizing your professional qualifications and activities. A CV is similar to a resume, but an advantage to the CV format is the significant freedom to choose the headings and categories for your information and the strength reflected in their arrangement.

Bring a working draft, such as an existing resume, and a list of activities including: Honors, Awards & Prizes received no longer than 5 years ago, Academic and Research Activities, Community Service Involvement, Work History, and Activities outside of the academic environment. In this workshop you will have the opportunity to work with Office of Merit Scholarships, Fellowships & Awards staff to develop and strengthen a draft of your CV!
