An Effective CV

October 29th, 2021 JEAN-LUC DOUMONT Principiae

A key component of job searches, the Curriculum Vitae remains a challenge for many people, whether young or more experienced. In one or two pages, the candidate must “sell” himself or herself favorably yet without arrogance, include all necessary information without overwhelming the reader, and stand out visually without seeking originality for its own sake. Cutting through the subjective, often contradictory advice from the recruiting world, this half-day workshop proposes no-nonsense guidelines toward an effective curriculum vitae, in terms of both content and format. It ends with a brief editing exercise, during which participants review the draft curriculum vitae of one another.

An engineer from Louvain School of Engineering and a PhD in Applied Physics from Stanford University, Jean-luc Doumont is acclaimed worldwide for his no-nonsense approach, his highly applicable, often life-changing recommendations on a wide range of topics, and Trees, maps, and theorems and his book about “effective communication for rational minds.”
