Non-Academic Job Search: Resumes and Cover Letters (Virtual)

Date: Tuesday, March 24, 2020, 3:30 p.m. - 5 p.m.

Location: Join URL:

Cost: Free

Preparing a great resume and cover letter for a non-academic job requires specific information for public and private sector jobs.  While many graduate students are considering non-academic careers, they are not sure how to approach the transition. In this presentation, we will delve further into two essential components of the non-academic job search: resumes and cover letters. This presentation will be attentive to the differences between curriculum vitaes and resumes and academic and non-academic cover letters. Crucially, it will also help academics learn to sell their particular skill sets.  During the workshop, grad/prof students and postdocs will learn:

1.  How to successfully convert a CV to a resume

2.  Write a cover letter for public and private sector jobs

3.  Learn industry specific terminology and how to translate your experiences for an industry audience
