Does Your Resume/CV Communicate the Right Message?

Thursday, October 03, 2019 at 1:30pm to 3:00pm


This workshop will discuss the many ways of creating a resume 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. Your resume is not an autobiography, but rather a list of relevant accomplishments that links your skills to the needs of the company. You’ll use these techniques in your lifelong career strategies. Actual MIT PhD/Postdoc resumes will be provided as handouts. This CAPD event is open to MIT undergraduates, graduate students, postdocs, and alumni. Registration requested via Careerbridge (powered by Handshake).
