This workshop will present strategies and guidelines for crafting highly effective job application documents. Content will include best practices for both academic and industrial job markets with a focus on evaluating your own CV, resume, or cover letter objectively from the perspective of an employer. Participants are encouraged to bring a working draft of a CV and/or resume.

Participants will have an opportunity to play "hiring manager" through a small group activity. Based on a job description and sample resumes, participants will decide which candidate they'd like to interview.
