FYI: Is your C.V. well crafted?

In a recent Chronicle of Higher Education article, “The Rhetoric of the CV,”  writer Joshua Eyler encourages you to think about the message your C.V. communicates.

Do you need to create or revise your CV to send the best possible message about your work?  Register for the University of Colorado Denver Writing Center workshop: Writing a Curriculum Vitae (C.V.)

This workshop is designed for both graduate students who are considering a career in higher education and instructors/faculty who are interested in revising their CVs. The workshop will provide an overview of creating a Curriculum Vitae: a specialized academic resume. We will discuss who needs a C.V. and why, what goes in a C.V., and examine a variety of professional samples. Time will also be allotted to look at drafts of your own C.V.

Presenter: Justin Bain, Writing Center Director
Dates/Times: April 20th, 12-2pm, Anschutz Medical Campus: Health Sciences Library, Teaching Lab 1 & 2
