Dear Colleagues,

 The Marine and Coastal Ecology Research Center (MCERC) is offering a
distance learning course aimed at helping undergraduates and recent
graduates of marine biology and marine science programs preparing to apply
for internships, employment, or graduate school.

 Marine mammal work often involves short and long term commitments
including internships, contract work, and honors/graduate research
projects.  Developing a CV that will communicate marine mammal research
experience can differ from other professions with long term work from a
single employer. A well written package has the potential to better compete
for opportunities.

This program has been developed in response to many of our marine biology
students requesting a day of their field intensive courses be dedicated to
creating effective communication via CVs, letter of interest, and email
correspondence to potential employers and future graduate advisers.

Please share the information below with your students or peers.
