Resume Redux: Using the Writing Process as a Tool for Career Discovery

The effort to convert humanities experience into language that reinstates beyond the academy continues. Jared Redick of The Resume Studio in San Francisco joins UCHRI in his ongoing journey to help humanities PhDs and post-docs unravel complex matters related to converting an academic CV into a commercially-useful resume. Join the conversation whether you’re new to Jared’s methodologies, in the midst of your own career inflection, or happily on the other side of your job search.
