Event Description 

Are you unsure of what to include on your CV or how to introduce your research, teaching, and service in a compelling way in a cover letter? In this workshop, we will cover the fundamentals of writing a CV and cover letter and evaluate samples together so that you can put your strongest foot forward as an applicant for fellowships, post-docs, and faculty positions in the humanities and social sciences. Workshop participants will also have a separate opportunity the following week to apply what they’ve learned by drafting their own CV and cover letter and getting one-on-one feedback from a graduate writing consultant.
