It’s that time of year when “senioritis” runs rampant and many students are either avoiding the need to search for a job or they’re not sure how to begin. Tomorrow, April 11th, we’re offering a workshop in collaboration with the Writing in the Disciplines Program called Writing your Cover Letter or Resume/Vitae. The two-hour workshop—from 9:30-11:30 in Room 303, Bailey/Howe Library—is open to UVM graduate students and faculty who are interested in these topics.

If you are unable to join us tomorrow, but are interested in sharing some resources with your students, then take a look at the UVM Career Center website or, better yet, send your students to the workshops and walk-in hours at the NEW Career HUB at the Davis Center.
The undergraduate/graduate student job search resources are:
- Build a Resume
- Write a Cover Letter
- Begin Networking and Informational Interviewing
- Prepare for an Interview
- Dress to Impress
Also, a new academic planning tool is available to help with the current round of student advising! “The 4 year plan“ is a wonderful tool on the Career Center site to help faculty advise students throughout their time at UVM and also assist with the plans for a future career.
There is a great set of resources on the Career Center site to help graduate students with their future planning as well. Example CVs are available and information about searching for an academic career.
Good luck on your searches and be sure to take advantage of all the great resources available on campus.
