About Curriculum Vitae (CV)
A CV is a longer, more detailed version of a resume. CVs are mostly used in academic, scientific, or research environments and are commonly 3-10 pages in length. Other industries may not care or will not spend time reading a full CV.
Most people think they need a CV when in reality a resume is sufficient. Therefore, the first thing you need to consider is do you even need a CV. Check with your colleagues in your department and/or a Career Advisor before starting as different disciplines have different requirements.
Commonly used sections of a CV may include:
- Peer Reviewed Presentations
- Professional Committees Served
- Scholarly Professional Memberships
- Courses Taught
- References (varies on discipline)
