Resources - CV

Post by imehedi » Sat Mar 28, 2015 1:31 am

We all use CVs/Resumes, no matter at which stage of career we are at. Making a CV that suits the purpose is always a challenge for undergraduates, fresh graduates and sometimes the post-doctoral researchers.

Ask yourself the following:
  1. What should you know about CVs or resumes?
  2. Should you submit CV or Resume?
  3. What is the difference between CV and resume?
  4. Is there a difference one of these for the European and American market?
  5. Is there a format difference in CV/Resume for a job in a pharmaceutical company and a position in an top lab?
  6. What is academic CV?
  7. What is a CV for industry
If you were unsure in answering any of the questions above, then this thread is probably for you.

Here in this thread, I will try to post resources from European and American sources on CV and Resumes.

Feel free to share your views and resources too. If you would like to share, please share a link and explain the type of source (i.e. European/American/any other).
Cheers,
