Converting Your CV to a Resume for Industry

If you are considering exploring Industry positions, you will need to have a resume that effectively positions you for this path. This workshop presented by Bob Dolan will discuss the process of converting your 4-6 page CV into a 2-page resume for industry, and creating a document that effectively targets the Hiring Manager. Can your resume survive a 15 second scan and still get into the YES pile? Discussions will surround the strategies of effective messaging and how to be "on-point" with your written communication. Actual MIT PhD/Postdoc resumes will be provided as handouts.
