When: October 12, 11:30am - 1:30pm

Where: Robert Sutherland Hall, room 202

​Presenter: Christine Fader (Career Services)


Learn how to articulate and present your transferable skills and your disciplinary expertise to employers outside the academic sector. To gain the most benefit from this workshop, please bring your CV or draft resumé (both if you have both) to work on, as well as the ad for a specific position you are interested in. You will learn about the purpose and organization of a resumé as opposed to a CV, as well as key components and strategies that make an effective cover letter for job applications outside academia. You will work on exercises designed to help you customize your cover letter to the specific position you wish to apply for.
