Danielle (from McGill's Career Planning Center) will provide a workshop on how to prepare your CV and hone your interview skills for a non-academic employer (though, these skills apply for academic positions as well!).
As a postdoctoral researcher, you have a variety of valuable skills. But, especially when transitioning into non-academic careers, explaining and highlighting those skills can be tricky. This workshop will cover ways to present some of the most common transferable skills obtained via academic research in terms that effectively connect them to non-academic work. Strategies for explaining your skills and accomplishments in both CVs and interview contexts will be discussed.
