What are the qualities of a good CV and what is its purpose? A CV is an archive of your academic history that is used is in different ways by different people throughout your academic career. Learn about the critical aspects of developing and enhancing your academic CV by:
- Incorporating Data – The CV is a database as well as your personal archive. Referees analyze the ‘data’ in your CV to craft individualized and specific reference letters.
- Focusing on the individual – Your CV is unique to you, and your position in your career. It’s important not to compare with others when critiquing your own CV.
- Growing a Living Document – Different aspects of your CV can shine for specific opportunities, and by reviewing your CV for each new opportunity you can customize your CV for maximum impact.
