Our Berkeley Food Institute Career Panel Series is kicking off this academic year with a two-part resume webinar and workshop!

Andrew is Associate Director for Graduate Students and PhDs at the UC Berkeley Career Center, and Nuna is Project Manager for People Experience and Inclusion & Diversity at Twitter.

Join us after the presentation for an intimate one-on-one workshop to review and polish your resumes. Food systems and UC Berkeley Career Center professionals with valuable experience will provide relevant feedback in 15-minute sessions. This workshop will be available to 30 current Berkeley undergraduate, masters, and PhD students. Bring your printed-out resume for us to make comments and marks on. 

We will maintain a waitlist for the in-person workshop and confirm 48 hours before the event whether waitlist members have obtained a spot. To have your questions considered in the Zoom webinar, please register by October 31

Attendees of the workshop portion of the event will also be able to attend the webinar presentation in person at 132 Mulford Hall. Adherence to the latest public health guidelines for Covid-19 will be strictly followed.
