This workshop and the accompanying POSTDOCket article are part of the NPA’s efforts to help its members get ready for the 2020 Career Fair being held during the NPA Annual Conference, March 27-29 in San Diego.  If you are interested or think you might be interested in applying for jobs outside of the academy, this workshop is for you.

Resumes are a common document used to apply for jobs outside of academia, and contrary to popular belief resumes are not simply short CVs; constructing one requires more than just shortening your CV to one page. This workshop will describe the difference between CVs and resumes, and specifically show you what you should highlight and how you can translate some of the information you have from one to another. The workshop will also cover common categories found in a resume and some of the unique writing style that makes resumes more effective.
