Résumés and Cirriculum Vitae (CV) are crucial documents in job applications as they demonstrate experiences, projects, and/or skills that you have that may be of value to a potential employer. Typically, résumés are short, 1-page documents that can summarize work, performance, or teaching experience. CVs tend to consist of 3-8 pages and are often used when applying for academic positions. Below is a curated list of resources when developing various types of résumés and CVs. The best time to start creating a résumé or CV is now, even before you start applying for jobs. Begin a list of skills, work, or project experience and several short descriptor sentences with active verbs for each entry. Before you submit an application, always make sure to double check grammar and formatting! Looking for in-person review of a résumé or CV?
