Things to Include in Your CV

Hey there friend! So you need to write a CV? What even is a CV? 

Well – a CV is similar to a resume, but you list all of your academic and professional experiences. Unfortunately there isn’t really a set template on what to include and what not to include in your CV. 

I suggest that you look on your university’s website and see if your professor’s CV is online. You can always model your document similar to theirs. This was the most helpful thing for me! I combined the different elements from the different CVs to make my personal document. 

Here are the things that I noticed most people frequently included when looking at different CVs. 

1. Education 

2. Relevant Work Experience in the Field 

3. Scholarships, Grants, & Awards

4. Conferences, Research Presentations, & Invited Lectures

5. Articles: peer reviewed & non-peer reviewed 

6. Media Appearances: interviews, radio, podcasts, television, documentaries, etc. 

7. Department, Professional, & Community Service

8. Professional Memberships & Organizations 

9. Languages: spoken, written, & reading knowledge 

10. Publications: books, essays, etc.

I hope this is helpful! Now go make a CV that will wow everyone! 

I’ll talk to ya soon! 🙂
