WORKSHOP: Creating a Powerful Resume, Part 1 – Inside Tips From a PhD Hiring Manager

What does a hiring manager look for in a resume? What is the best way to communicate technical and transferable skills to a mixed audience? A good resume tells an interesting story that is customized to the employer’s needs. The more intriguing the resume, the more likely an employer will schedule an interview and make a job offer. The key is to construct an impactful, concise (no longer than two pages), employer-relevant story that demonstrates a perfect fit for the job. This workshop provides tips and best practices for creating an effective resume that will entice employers.

As a supplement to this workshop, STEM Career Services will conduct private one-on-one resume reviews with participants so that they can modify their own resumes and increase their chances of landing interviews and job offers.
