On September 29, the Career Center, in collaboration with the Department of Economics and its chair, Prof. Refet Gürkaynak, held a CV-writing workshop for first-year ECON students. The purpose of the workshop was to enable participants to produce a well-designed, well-written CV.
Career Center Coordinator Aydan Öktem conducted the workshop. In her presentation, she indicated how recruiters’ long-term priorities could influence their view of CVs submitted for specific job openings, and also discussed the importance of creating a profile that would stand out from the crowd.
During the workshop, students had the opportunity to prepare a CV, ask for help in this process from Career Center consultants, and receive feedback on the completed product.
