Resumes & CV's

How do I write a resume or CV?

As you draft your resume, keep the company in mind and the job description at hand. Make sure you emphasize your experiences that are consistent with the skills the company is looking for in their next hire. The first step to impressing employers is an error-free resume tailored to their specific opportunity. Learn more in our Guide to Writing a Resume

Have you been asked to write a curriculum vitae (CV) instead of a resume? 
Some employers or graduate programs may request a CV for a more comprehensive look at your experience. While very similar to a resume, a CV is often used in academia, science fields, or when applying outside of the U.S. As you are starting out your career, you may not actually have many differences between your resume and CV. To learn more about writing a CV, check out the Curriculum Vitae (CV) Guide.
