CV and Cover Letter Workshop

I cooperation with Karrieresenteret UiO (career planning) the ATTR members association invites the ATTR members to apply for upcoming workshops.

About the workshop

Aiming for an academic or nonacademic career? Either way, it is important to tailor your CV accordingly. A well thought-out CV is your key to making a positive first impression on a potential employer.

The cover letter is your chance to make the sale. The function of the cover letter is to land you an interview. So write yours in a way that makes the person reading it want to meet you!

Many people find writing a cover letter to be a strange and challenging exercise. The challenge for you is to demonstrate how your skills set and background will enable you to meet the needs of the position.

This workshop will help you get started on what to write for the (Norwegian) job market.

Come for a presentation from the Career Services at UiO (Karrieresenteret) on how to write a CV and Cover Letter, tailored to PhD!
