Faculty of Information Professional Resume Critique Event

Posted on behalf of the Faculty of Information Student Council:

We are Amanda LeClerc and Cybil Stephens, Professional Development Co-Chairs for the Masters of Information Student Council, at U of T’s Faculty of Information. We are looking for information professionals to participate in the Professional Resume Critique being organized for early January, 2010.

If you are interested in providing advice and constructive comments to students regarding their resumes, please send a note to pd.ischool@utoronto.ca with your name, organization, title and information field (i.e.: academic librarianship, medical librarianship, public archives, records management etc.) by December 11, 2009.

What is the Professional Resume Critique?

This is an opportunity for Masters of Information (MISt) students to pair up with an information professional in their area of interest and to get a critical review of their resumes for content, format and layout.

How does it work?

Students are given the contact information for their respective professional, and contact the individual directly. The student and the professional determine a mutually agreed-upon time and place to meet and discuss the student’s resume. This meeting can be in person (on-campus or off-campus), over the phone, or via e-mail… whatever works best.

Students will already have had their resumes edited for basic format and content errors and are now seeking one-on-one advice from an information professional who can provide more detailed tips.

We hope to hear from you soon!

Many thanks,

Amanda LeClerc and Cybil Stephens
