CV Resources

As you are writing your CV, talk to your professors, other students at your level, students who are a year or two ahead of you and alumni of your program.  Ask if they’d be willing to review your CV and give you feedback.  Be prepared to put a lot of thought and effort into the creation and continual evolution of your CV. A good CV can take weeks or months to perfect.
