Math/CS 299/399 Colloquium in Mathematics & Computer Science I & II Fall 2014  



You will create a resume following the guidelines in the Office of Career Development. See their Resume Handout for information about writing a resume. You can write your resume in either Word or TeX/LaTeX. You may think, "Hey, I am only a sophomore. Why do I need a resume?" I'm glad you asked. Believe it or not, you have marketable skills. You now know more mathematics and/or computer science than most of the billions of other people on this planet. Those skills are great for internships or other summer opportunities. Revising an existing resume is always easier than starting from scratch. This is your excuse to create a solid resume if you have not already done so. There are many job sites that contain information on resume writing.

Rather than having an career objective section, you will include a personal professional mission statement. Part of this course is to have you be a little introspective about yourself and your personal goals. Write them down! You can do a google search for personal mission statements to get some ideas about this area of your resume. This should be a short statement that includes something about your passion for mathematics and/or computer science.

Print this page and submit it with your resume. You will need to meet with me after your draft is written. You will need to include signatures from both the Office of Career Development and your academic advisor.
