How to Write a CV (Curriculum Vitae) and Cover Letter: An Essential CV Writing Guide

If you’re ready to create a professional and well-organized CV that will impress, then this book is for you!

Read on your PC, Mac, smart phone, tablet, or Kindle device.

A Curriculum Vitae (CV), Latin for “the course of my life,” is meant to be a detailed, yet succinct, description of your professional and academic achievements, qualifications, education, and experience. In short, it presents a summary of your knowledge, abilities, and competencies accomplished throughout your lifetime. And yes, it differs from a resume! Unlike a resume, the CV format can be (and often is) longer than just one or two pages. It may include information not usually found on resumes such as theses written, works published and research undertaken. CVs don’t have to be flashy – nor should they be – but they should reflect an accurate and complementary account of the journey you’ve taken to arrive at a point where you feel you’re a good candidate for the job to which you’re applying. In this ebook, I am going to walk you through the entire process of creating a professional, well-organized, and impressive CV that will easily communicate your accomplishments and qualifications to your prospective employer. Let’s get started!

Here Is A Preview Of What You’ll Learn…

  • What to Include in Your CV
  • Structuring the Education, Dissertation, and Fellowships Section
  • Highlighting Your Teaching Experience and Other Employment
  • Showcasing Your Published Work and Research
  • Listing Relevant Presentations, Affiliations, and Training
  • Tapping Important References
  • How to Write an Impressive Cover Letter
