Workshop Your CV/Resume With Experienced Women in Science!

Uncover the following:

  • A resume is not a CV, and a CV is not a resume
  • Resumes and CVs should be tailored to specific jobs
  • You don’t need to include everything you’ve ever done

After an introductory talk by Ellie Cantor, PhD, MBA, who spent over 20 years in biopharmaceutical executive search and recruiting, we will break into small working groups depending on your goals (e.g., academia at a research intensive school, teaching, industry, writing, other/non-traditional careers).

Sample resumes and CVs will be available.
