What is a Curriculum Vitae?
Contrary to popular belief a CV is NOT a resume. Yes, they hold similar qualities, but these two documents are not interchangeable. A CV is a document that holds all of your amazing scholarly achievements.
Your three page paper will lay out everything from Education to community involvement. Into a variety of separate sections you will discuss your, Educational pathway, Awards, Research Interests/Profile, Publications, Experience (both scholarly and community wise), and finally your references.
