Building a Successful Academic CV

Martin Coffey, Doctoral College

Writing a CV is an easy task.  Learning the optimum CV format takes a little longer.  Developing the knowledge, skills and abilities that will enable you to build the academic CV that will take your career takes a lot longer.  This workshop focuses on the three steps of: 1. Explore your options; 2. Plan where you want to get to; 3. Build the CV that will get you where you want to be.  The session consists of a short presentation on career planning followed by a practical workshop on building the range of career skills you need in order to achieve your dream.  Naomi will be co-facilitating with an academic colleague from CMBSP.
