Workshop: Resumes & Cover Letters for Positions in Business, Government & Non-Profits

October 19, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 10:15 am

Are you interested in working outside academia?  Learn how to translate the skills and expertise from your academic CV to a resume that is more suited to non-academic applications.  You will also learn about key components and strategies that make an effective cover letter and work on exercises designed to help you customize it.  To gain the most benefit from this workshop, it is helpful to have a specific opportunity/sector in mind. Please bring a draft copy of your resume or CV to work on (if you have one).

Learning Outcomes:

  • Learn how to write job-appropriate cover letters, resumés, and CVs.
  • Understand the key differences between a CV and a resume and when to use each
  • Identify key sections of the resume that help convey a career identity/match
  • Be able to identify the fundamentals of a solution-focused cover letter

This is not an SGPS event. This event is being run by Career Services through Queen’s School of Graduate Studies.
