What to include…


Cv vs r sum l.jpg

CV vs. Résumé

A vitae includes more in-depth information than a résumé. This means expanding some categories and adding others, such as:

  • CONTINUING EDUCATION AND TRAINING

  • LICENSES AND CERTIFICATIONS

  • LECTURES AND PRESENTATIONS (academic or professional)

  • BOARDS AND COMMITTEES

  • SPECIAL PROJECTS

  • RELEVANT COURSEWORK (to match career or academic objective)

  • PAPERS AND PUBLICATIONS (This may also include a description of your thesis or dissertation.)

  • INTERESTS AND GOALS (future academic or professional goals) –will most likely be covered in your personal statement

  • TRAVEL (exposure to cultural experiences)

  • any additional information that may support your qualifications
