Description

Doctoral Students of HYMY

In this course, participants learn to hone their academic marketing messages to demonstrate their track record. We will first develop an elevator pitch for quick academic introductions, and then move onto biographical sketches, curriculum vitae (CV), resumes, cover letters and letters of motivation. We focus on the art of crafting and refining each of these documents for purpose-driven messages to market the skills of young and seasoned academics alike.

Time: Fridays 09.04.– 23.04. / 09.00–12.00

Main building, Aud I

12 contact lessons with three face-to-face meetings and 15 hours of independent/group work between the meetings. Maximum 16 students.

In-class discussions and group work are supplemented with writing exercises to put knowledge and skills into practice. Both instructor and peer feedback aid in refining initial drafts of each type of document.
