This CV Lab is an interactive meetup which gives you the chance to have your CV critiqued by peers under the guidance of a career coach. There will be a brief discussion on general CV principles and a review of some basic sample resumes before breaking into small groups for feedback. A career coach will answer any questions that you may have regarding your CV and inform you about the career resources available through BEAM.
Bring 4 copies of your CV to the workshop or send a digital copy of it to firstname.lastname@example.org the day prior to the workshop so that copies can be made ahead of time.
