CV Building Blocks for the Academic Job Market

Thursday, February 25, 2016 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm

This session will provide advanced-career graduate students with strategies to create convincing academic CVs. A UMass faculty panel will describe CV components, discuss examples from the perspective of recent hires and hiring committees in the social and behavioral sciences, and provide suggestions for re-framing a CV for different audiences.  While all graduate students are welcome, this session will be particularly helpful for those approaching the academic job search. A pizza lunch will be provided. This event is co-sponsored by the Graduate School Office of Professional Development and ISSR.
