Curriculum Vita Review for PhD Candidates
Thursday, May 25, 6:00 - 7:30 p.m.
Location: Ravenna B and C
Session Organizer: N. Jain, Purdue University, USA
This special session is geared towards PhD candidates within
1-2 years of degree completion who are interested in strengthening
their CVs prior to entering the job market. The session will begin
with a short overview of what constitutes a strong CV, followed by
10-minute one-on-one reviews between PhD students and faculty and/or
industry hiring managers. PhD candidates will be required to sign up
in advance to have their CV reviewed – see instructions below.
Preference in sign up will be given to those students who have
already passed their preliminary exam (i.e. exam prior to the final
defense), and second priority to students who are official PhD
candidates (i.e. have passed their qualifying exam). We believe that
students should be on clear path towards degree completion, but also
have sufficient time to act on the feedback they receive to
strengthen their CVs before they go on the job market.
Note that the initial overview is open to anyone and does not require
prior registration. The registration process is only required if a
student is interested in a one-on-one review of their CV.
