What is a CV?
Curriculum vitae, also known as a CV, literally means
Course of Life. A CV is a more extensive summary of what
one has done professionally than a resume. It is your
chance to provide both a detailed and comprehensive
description of your academic credentials and experience. It
is viewed as a marketing tool and is used primarily by those
who hold master’s or doctoral degrees when they apply for
teaching or research positions at colleges, universities and
research institutions. A CV should be updated frequently
based on the developments in a scholar’s career.
What should I include?
Your CV is your paper introduction to potential employers.
It should be clear, concise and easy to read so that you will
be considered for an interview by a search committee.
The following categories are often included:
Contact info (Name, address, telephone and e-mail)
Business info
Licenses
Education (Degrees, awarding institutions and dates)
Dissertation or thesis title(s), names of advisor and
committee members
Awards/grants
Post-doctoral training/fellowships
Academic appointments
Hospital affiliated appointments (if applicable)
Publications and conference presentations
Teaching experience and interests
Related experience (for example, administrative or
editorial experience)
Languages or other skills (including technology)
Extracurricular activities/community service
Service and membership in professional associations
How should I organize my CV?
Two common strategies that apply to CV's as well as
resumes are gapping and parallelism. Gapping is the use
of incomplete sentences in order to present your
information as clearly and concisely as possibly. Parallelism is
also very important to a strong CV. Generally, you will want
to keep the structure of your phrases and/or sentences
consistent throughout your document. Thus, if you use a
particular verb tense in one portion of your CV to describe
your duties, try to use the same throughout your CV.
Additionally, be consistent in your use of punctuation, type
face and indentation. Finally, liberal use of white space and
judicious use of bold type can help make your CV easier to
read. Use topical headings and consider that what comes
first will receive the most emphasis. New job seekers
usually open with their academic preparation, drawing
attention to their degrees. Experienced job seekers,
however, may begin with their current positions.
How long should my CV be?
Content determines the length of the CV. A current student
or junior professor will likely have a CV two to four pages in
length; however, senior faculty can create vitae that may be
ten pages or more.
Finally, meet with a career counselor to review your CV
and show it to your professors to solicit their feedback.
