CV Writing Workshop at WPA 2011

WPA-GO is excited to announce the two-part CV-writing workshop being offered specifically for graduate students at the upcoming 2011 WPA Conference in Baton Rouge. The workshop, which is sponsored by WPA-GO, will be led by eminent WPAs Duane Roen and Joe Janangelo. And because these events are scheduled as conference presentation sessions, there is no additional cost for attending over and above the conference registration fee.
