Creating an Effective Curriculum Vitæ with Jean-luc Doumont
Thu. Dec 3, 2020 08:00 PM in Brussels; 1pm CST
Speaker: Jean-luc Doumont, PhD (www.principiae.be)
Its format may have evolved over the years, if only to reflect new ways to communicate, but its purpose has not changed: a curriculum vitæ must establish a candidate’s competences and enable rapid, selective access to the information provided. This two-hour lecture discusses what to include in a curriculum vitæ, how to format it, and how to write an effective cover letter as a recent graduate or as a more experienced professional.
An engineer from the Louvain School of Engineering and a PhD in applied physics from Stanford University, Jean-luc Doumont is the lead instructor for most of our training projects: he enjoys nothing more than standing in front of a group of grad students or professionals, challenging everything they thought they knew, provoking or facilitating a discussion, structuring their thoughts, sharpening their skills, and, importantly, arousing enthusiasm.
An articulate, entertaining, and thought-provoking presenter, Jean-luc is a popular instructor and invited speaker worldwide. Over the years, he has given hundreds of talks and workshops, in English, French, Dutch, and Spanish, at an array of companies, top-ranked universities, research laboratories, and conferences.
