In addition to learning the differences between an academic CV and a resume, you will learn specific steps and strategies to help you craft a resume that effectively promotes your qualifications in a way that appeals to a broad audience. Topics include: - Describing your skills and experiences in a way that translates across disciplines, industries, and career fields. - Tailoring and organizing your information with the reader in mind. - Choosing the right format, layout, and style.
