Thursday Extra 4/20: Résumé Review Session

Thursday, April 20, 2017
4:15 p.m. in Science 3821

  • Do you want to know how to talk about your 151 final project on your résumé?
  • Do you want to know how to write about your upcoming summer experience on your résumé?
  • Does your 3-year-old résumé need some pizzazz?
This Thursday Extra will be a résumé peer-review session. Students of all years are welcome to share feedback with one another about their résumés. We have also asked some CS professors and alumni to join in and share their wisdom during the session. Please bring 5 copies of your résumé to share if you want respectful and meaningful feedback from other participants.

One of the alums who will be joining us wrote a great article targeted at seniors and recent grads that might be helpful to some of you: Your Career is a Startup: What every recent grad needs to know.

On Thursday, 18 September 2014, the Computer Science Department's Student Educational Policy Committee (SEPC) and the Grinnell College Student Chapter of the ACM will present a Résumé Review Session. CLS staff and CS alumni will be present to review résumés, discuss general approaches to résumé building for computer scientists, and provide useful ideas.
