Webinar: CV to Resume Workshop

Are you considering working in the private sector?

The SearchLite’s Innovators-in-Residence program presents:

The CV to Resume workshop!

October 7, 2014

5:30- 6:30 PM EDT

Free Webinar- Registration Required

How do the skills you have developed as a graduate student apply to the world outside academia?

The curriculum vitae and resume may share some basic content, but they are worlds apart.

If you are considering a post-academic career in the private sector, this workshop will help you understand how your academic experience translates from a CV to a resume, the function of a resume, how employers use them, and what you need to include to be considered a competitive and strong candidate.

Workshop Lead

Catherine Maybrey, Ph.D. Graduate Career Strategist at McMaster University, planned to be a professor. Nine years into her education she realized that no matter how great her talents may be, the market wasn’t with her and she would have to figure out how to create a post-academic career in a time before the term ‘post-academic’ even existed.

Cate helps clients move forward in their transition through action. She “tells it like it is” and believes people should work smarter, not harder.                                                                   http://www.cmcoachingservices.com
