CV & Personal Statement Writing Workshops

CV Writing Workshops:

Tuesday, Nov. 15, 2:30pm, MGH 171
Wednesday, Nov. 30, 1:30pm, MGH 171

Develop your undergraduate CV/Resume for use in scholarship, fellowship, research opportunities, and graduate school applications! A Curriculum Vitae (“CV” or “vitae”) is a comprehensive, biographical statement emphasizing your professional qualifications and activities. A CV is similar to a resume, but an advantage to the CV format is the significant freedom to choose the headings and categories for your information and the strength reflected in their arrangement.

Bring a working draft, such as an existing resume, and a list of activities including: Honors, Awards & Prizes received no longer than 5 years ago, Academic and Research Activities, Community Service Involvement, Work History, and Activities outside of the Academic Environment. In this workshop you will have the opportunity to work with Office of Merit Scholarships, Fellowships & Awards staff to develop and strengthen a draft of your CV!

Please RSVP to attend at https://expo.uw.edu/expo/rsvp/event/237.

Personal Statement Writing Workshops:

Wednesday, Nov. 16, 3:30pm, MGH 171
Thursday, Dec. 1, 1:30pm, MGH 136

The Personal Statement is an important part of an application package. Applying for scholarships, internships, and graduate/professional programs often requires a personal statement or application letter. This type of writing requires you to outline your strengths confidently and concisely, which can be challenging.

Personal Statement Workshops will provide students with essential information to develop an understanding of not only writing about their interests, eligibility and suitability for applications, but also to learn how their statements provide evidence of their achievements that aren’t reflected in other parts of an application.

Please RSVP to attend any of the sessions at https://expo.uw.edu/expo/rsvp/event/236.
