CV Conversion to Resume

Wednesday, January 23, 2019 at 1:30pm to 3:00pm


If you are considering exploring Industry positions, you will need to have a resume that effectively positions you for this path.  This workshop presented by Bob Dolan will discuss the process of converting your 4-6 page CV into a 2-page resume for industry, and creating a document that effectively targets the Hiring Manager.  Can your resume survive a 15 second scan and still get into the YES pile? Discussions will surround the strategies of effective messaging and how to be "on-point" with your written communication.  Actual MIT PhD/Postdoc resumes will be provided as handouts. All CAPD workshops are open to MIT undergraduates, graduate students, postdocs, and alumni unless otherwise specified.


Registration requested via Careerbridge.
