CV/Resume


  • http://graduate.dartmouth.edu/careers/services/vita.html
  • This is an excellent source which outlines the formation of a CV. It provides a list of items to include in the CV with specific tips for each, how to format references, and possible supplementary materials. Links to three examples CVs are provided as well.

  • http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/641/01/
  • Like the Dartmouth website, this site provides a comprehensive plan for creating a CV. It begins by explaining the difference between a CV and a resume. Elements to include in the CV are then covered. It covers "gapping" and "parallelism" as essentials for a good CV. One weakness I think this has is that it does not provide CV examples, but instead directs the student to other sources (books) to learn more about formatting.

 

Interviewing


http://www.acsu.buffalo.edu/~jbeebe2/IntvQs.htm

    For the academic interviewee, this source provides nine links to common interview questions. It's a fairly comprehensive list, over all, but more academic-focused.
