Ever wondered what makes an ideal CV/Resume in order to be hired for a new job or promoted at your company/university? Your CV/Resume is a window into who you are, as a scientist, and as a trainee, employee, or faculty member, so you need to make sure that it is telling the best story possible. This program will explore and examine the key aspects of a CV/Resume with great tips and pointers on what to do and not to do when preparing these documents. We have assembled 3 excellent speakers to explore this topic based on their experiences in academia, and industry with a focus on bioengineering.
The program will begin with 3 short talks on various aspects of CV/Resume writing including, but not limited to, how to organize your CV, what you should include, how to make the best impression, and what not to include. Following the short talks, we will have tables set up around the room for participants to ask experts in the field about how to improve their individual CVs. This program is geared towards biomedical engineering careers, but is ideal for the early career investigator as well as those who are beginning or about to complete the tenure process, and those looking to progress in their industry positions. Please make sure that you come with a copy of your CV/Resume and questions for the experts to make this the most productive session possible.
