Curriculum Vitae (CV)

CV Writing Guide

CVs are typically used by master’s and doctoral students who are seeking academic or research positions.  The format of the CV is different from a resume in terms of length, content, and use.  Its length may be extended (2-6 pages) and the categories of information are likely to differ.  Its format will vary from discipline to discipline and will contain more detail than a resume.  Consult with faculty in your academic department as you prepare an appropriate CV for your field.

Select and prioritize categories that best present your credentials.
