Academic CV and Cover Letter Workshop for Graduate Students and Postdocs [Registration required]

A curriculum vitae (CV) and cover letter are key documents when applying to postdoc positions and academic jobs. An exceptional CV is more than just a list of your academic accomplishments; it allows you to market yourself to potential mentors and search committees as a compelling candidate. Academic cover letters are an opportunity to expand on your CV, tell your personal narrative, and convince the reader how you will add value to their department. In this workshop, you will learn how to craft CVs and cover letters that emphasize how your specific skills and experiences fit in and enrich an institution and department.
