Writing a CV
A Curriculum Vitae, or CV, may be expected by employers (especially within academic,
medical, scientific, research, or teaching environments) and also will be necessary
when applying for doctoral programs or fellowship opportunities. A CV is a comprehensive
biography of educational and professional experiences.
It is important to include on your CV all relevant information that would support
your candidacy for a position. CVs can be longer than a traditional resume and will
include contact information; education and academic information (including dissertation/thesis
and honors); relevant teaching, research and professional experience; publications;
presentations; skills; grants; licenses/certifications; and other categories relevant
to the employer.
Asking to view CVs of faculty members in your discipline is appropriate and encouraged.
Having someone review your CV is important and should be by done by a professor or
someone else in your field.
