Getting Started with CVs and Cover Letters Every graduate student needs a curriculum vitae, or CV Your CV represents your accomplishments and experience as an academic and helps to establish your professional image. Well before you apply for faculty positions, you will use your CV to apply for fellowships and grants, to accompany submissions for publications or conference papers, when being considered for leadership roles or consulting projects, and more. CV’s are also used when applying for some positions outside academia, such as in think tanks or research institutes, or for research positions in industry. As you progress through graduate school, you will, of course, add to your CV, but the basic areas to include are your contact information, education, research experience, teaching experience, publications, presentations, honors and awards, and contact information for your references, or those people willing to speak or write on your behalf. Some formatting pointers: There is no single best format. Refer to samples for ideas, but craft your CV to best reflect you and your unique accomplishments. Unlike a resume, there is no page limit, but most graduate students’ CVs are two to five pages in length. Your CV may get no more than thirty seconds of the reader’s attention, so ensure the most important information stands out. Keep it concise and relevant! Be strategic in how you order and entitle your categories. The most important information should be on the first page. Within each category, list items in reverse chronological order.

Its product portfolio consisted of several categories: network systems (routers, switches, optical networking), data centre (application networking services, storage networking, data centre switches), collaboration, voice and video (voice and unified communications, video, IPTV, cable and content delivery solutions), mobility/wireless (access points, outdoor wireless, wireless LAN controllers) and security (firewall, virtual private networks, security management). Cisco was also considered to be a best-in-class acquirer of high-tech companies by industry experts as well as corporate strategy practitioners.

While it is not something that any of us like to think about, death is an inevitable part of life, and we need to be prepared for it. Not only do we need to be psychologically prepared, we also need to be financially prepared. After-death expenses, such as funerals and other costs, can add up quickly, and if you don’t have your estate in order, your loved ones will have to cover all of these expenses. The first thing to do is to hire an estate attorney, and choose your power of attorney, because more cases that mishandled estate administration and planning cases can be costly.
