Feb. 12th, 1:00p-2:00p, SI 1113, "Sex in the C.V." 

This event will allow students to get the chance to learn about how sex/gender impacts the review process of CVs and resumes in an application. Students will also be able to get advice from our faculty about how to improve their own CV/resume so they can stand out in the pool of applicants.  Additionally, students will get the chance to compare CV's of a few faculty members here at CU Denver and compare what they see on papter to a journal article that highlights the same issue.​
