Once you decide to start exploring opportunities outside academe, you may need to recreate your CV as a resume. A resume is typically one page, and never more than two, though the length and content depend greatly on the job you seek.
To get started, take a look at our Resume and Cover Letter Guide (PDF), written specifically for GSAS students. Also, check out the online resume preparation tutorial—while it was designed to target Harvard undergraduates, it is appropriate for graduate students too!
Next, check out our program schedule for our resume and cover letter workshop and drop-in resume reviews.
If you cannot attend our group programs, consider meeting with a counselor to get feedback on your application materials. Please use Crimson Careers to schedule an appointment or call 617.495.2595 (option 0) to check for current walk-in schedules.
