Communications and Outreach manager to work at the National Farm to School Network. This position has the unique opportunity to be based anywhere in the continental USA. Deadline is January 13, 2012.

This would be a great job for someone with training in public health nutrition and modern media (and web design training) and communications. It looks like there is enormous creative control in this position, and they are recruiting a self-starter that can revamp their site and get folks excited about farm to school. I should apply to this. =)

I'm no pro on CV/resume/cover letter/motivational letter development, but this career planner article from John's Hopkins nails it. I stumbled up on this while searching several top US public health graduate schools' career sites. I wanted to share because it is written well, and has excellent examples to accompany the advice given.

After moving abroad, I found myself having to relearn this information. In Europe, as opposed to the US, the format for CVs and resumes are different. For example, the EuroPass. During a job fair I attended at the EU headquarters in Brussels, I noticed that everyone had a picture on their CV. Legal problems aside, this is not a social norm in the US, and may in fact, startle the employer because of discrimination issues (I'm not agreeing/disagreeing just making the point to understand the cultural norms before applying).
