When you sit down to write your resume, you probably spend a great deal of time thinking about how to translate your research into accomplishments that will be read by hiring managers. Simply stating that you served as a committee leader-or that you researched a given topic-doesn't convey the full impact and depth of your accomplishments. This workshop will provide you with a step-by-step guide to articulating your achievements, as well as a step-by-step framework for tailoring your resume to a specific job announcement. We will also briefly discuss cover letters. Participants will walk away feeling confident that they can create a high-impact job application for any position they choose to apply for.
