March 11, 2016

Do you know the difference between a CV and a resume? Do you know when to use one or the other?

This workshop focuses on the academic CV, how to produce an effective CV to best represent yourself on paper. You can expect to gain a better understanding of the key pieces of the CV, format and content, and the importance of disciplinary conventions. We'll discuss in what contexts you might be asked for a CV and how a CV differs from a resume. 

        When: March 17, 10:00 a.m. to 12: 20 p.m.

        Register: Please register using myInvolvement.

        Where: Saywell 10051, Burnaby Campus 

This session is split into two parts: 

  • The first hour will be dedicated to an overview of best practices, guided by the questions that participants bring with them
  • The second half of the session will be a working lab, for those participants who want to begin crafting their CVs, or making changes to their CVs. In small peer-to-peer groups, participants will get the opportunity to work on their documentation. 

If you already have a CV, please bring a copy to the workshop for the second half of the session.     

Please note this opportunity is for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows only.
