This week I taught a workshop for the amazing students in the Animal Behavior REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) program. The majority of these high-achieving researchers travel to IU from their home university, to spend the summer working on intensive projects within departments like Biology and Psychology.
We discussed the process for creating a CV, and the differences between a CV and a resume. Students participated by writing accomplishment statements for past positions and verbally articulating the research question for the work they are currently conducting. It was a great way to spend the afternoon!
I look forward to our one-on-one CV/Resume critiques next week. Thank you to Misty Proffitt, a current Evolution, Ecology, and Behavior graduate student, for inviting me! Misty participated in this REU as an undergraduate and currently conducts research on behavior in electric fish under Dr. Troy Smith.
