New Resume Assistant From LinkedIn and Microsoft

Thanks to Kailash Pandey ’19 for sharing this with us!

Microsoft and LinkedIn have created a new Resume Assistant. It is a tool to help users optimize their resumes for specific jobs, and is now available for Office 365 subscribers on Windows! Resume Assistant simply pops up in a sidebar and helps by offering examples of work experience descriptions you can use as inspiration for your resume based on a role (like a project manager) or an industry (like journalism). You can also filter through skills prospective employers might be looking for to fine-tune and tailor your CV.

To access the feature, just open Word, click on Review, then click Resume Assistant. Create a draft of your resume and then come meet with one of the PCAs during drop-in hours and they can give you feedback to make sure it is ready for applications! Drop in hours are Monday-Friday 12:30-4:00 pm in the Adirondack House.

Clinical Research Coordinator at University of California San Francisco

Seniors majoring in Sociology, Psychology or Neuroscience, this may be a great fit for you!

The Clinical Research Coordinator (CRC) position is with the Child Trauma Research Program (CTRP). CTRP is nationally recognized for its leadership in developing effective, family-centered interventions for children aged birth through five who experience traumatic events.

The team of multi-cultural, multi-lingual staff is dedicated to helping young children and their families heal from trauma. They develop and evaluate effective treatment models, provide training across settings and disciplines, and offer direct service to children and their families. Since 2001, CTRP has been the lead program of the Early Trauma Treatment Network, a center of the federally- funded National Child Traumatic Stress Network. Five randomized trials support the efficacy of Child-Parent Psychotherapy (CPP), our intervention for children aged 0-five who have experienced at least one traumatic event (e.g. maltreatment, the sudden or traumatic death of someone close, a serious accident, sexual abuse, exposure to domestic violence). As a result, many organizations across the country and internationally are seeking training in CPP.
