Workshop participants are expected to submit a cover letter of interest and a resume or CV in PDF form. These materials should target a geoscience job that is of interest to the student registrant. Attach your PDF cover letter and resume/CV in the space provided below and complete the form with your name, graduate or undergraduate status, and current area of geoscience interest or research specialization. It’s that simple. Student submittals will be critiqued during the workshop. Feel free to submit something already prepared. To maintain anonymity, students may remove or blackout the name and contact information from cover letters and resume/CVs.
