Curriculum Vitae Because your resume or curriculum vita (CV) is usually the first and sometimes the only thing an employer will see about you, it is often the most critical item in determining whether or not you will obtain an interview. These essential elements of the job search serve as an advertisement of your skills, knowl dge, and relevant experience. e Tips for preparing a resume can be found on page 22. What Is the Difference between a Resume and a Curriculum Vita? Resume Curriculum Vita Purpose Outlines your personal, edu ational and work related c experiences Length One- or two-page document Focus Strengths and qualifications for a particular position Yes Comprehensive summary of your educational and professional experience, including publications, presentations, professional activities, honors, and additional information Generally three or more pages in length, depending on your qualifications and level of experience Comprehensive biographical statement Objective Statement Included? Used in application for these types of positions Business, non-profit, other nonacademic positions No Faculty, research, clinical, or scientific positions If you are uncertain whether to use a resume or vita, ask yourself “Am I sending this document to other Ph.D.s? Is my Ph.D. required for this position? Is my scholarship relevant for this position?” If the answers to those questions are yes, you are proba ly going to use a b vita. As a general rule of thumb, unless a vita is requested, you should send a resume.
Writing a Curriculum Vitae Curriculum Vitae vs. Resume A resume is a 1-2 page brief summary of education and experience used to demonstrate qualifications for a position or type of position. A curriculum vitae (CV) is a 3 or more page detailed biographical statement emphasizing qualifications and professional activities in detail. A CV is used for advanced positions in research and higher education and may be used for other positions when requested. For most job seekers, a resume is all that you will need. However, it may be useful to develop a CV as you further your education and achieve professional accomplishments. Why a Curriculum Vitae Besides using your CV to get a job upon graduation, it can also be used in other ways: 1.A supporting document to include when submitting a grant or funding proposal 2.A requirement for an annual review with your employer 3.A requirement for membership to a professional society 4.A requirement for applying to medical school 5.A background statement to be used to develop an introduction for a professional presentation at a conference or meeting
What Makes a Curriculum Vitae Stand Out? You'll generate a better response with your curriculum vitae if it is well organized and is packed with relevant information to match and support your professional, academic or research objective. As a Job Placement Specialist for the University of Washington, Bothell I worked with students submitting curriculum vitaes for graduate programs. In this capacity, I applied several unique strategies when writing each curriculum vitae. The first was to prioritize and list the most relevant academic, research, volunteer or work history experience first within the curriculum vitae. The second was to include an Objective and Summary of Qualifications section at the top of each C.V. The third was to incorporate many of the strategies and resume writing techniques you'll learn by perusing the resume tips in this site as well as in my sister site which offers 40 Free Resume and Job Search Workshops. These strategies proved to be extremely effective and boosted the acceptance rate of students applying for highly competitive graduate programs - many of which accepted only one to twelve students out of 300 to 600 applicants. My endeavors and success in this arena were recognized and commented on by the Director of Student Activities as a result of students reporting their acceptance into graduate programs. Preparing effective C.V.'s presents a unique challenge due to length, which can make them boring and result in important data being buried or lost in such a long document. As a result, prioritizing your top skills and experience to be presented in the first or uppermost section of your C.V. makes sense. Then detail additional educational, employment or academic experience. In this way you will maximize important criteria which you do not want to be overlooked by academic or hiring committees.

Internet Payday Lending: How High-Priced Lenders Use the Internet to Mire Borrowers in Debt and Evade State Consumer Protections November 30, 2004 Executive Summary • Payday lending has expanded from check cashing outlets, pawn shops and payday loan outlets to the Internet. Loans are marketed, delivered and collected online at rates and terms that mire cashstrapped consumers in repeat borrowing at extremely high costs. Finance charges are in the $25 (650% APR) to $30 (780% APR) per $100 borrowed range, with built in loan flipping in many contracts. • Web sites marketing and/or delivering small loans are growing rapidly, with numerous referral sites feeding applications to actual lenders. Lenders are hard to locate, identify or contact. Some are licensed in their home states, while others hide behind anonymous domain registrations or are located outside the United States. • Banks are involved in Internet payday loans through the Automated Clearing House System (ACH) used to electronically deliver loans to consumers’ bank accounts and to withdraw payments. County Bank of Rehoboth Beach, DE, participates directly in Internet payday lending. • Internet payday lenders bypass state usury laws and consumer protections by locating in lax regulatory states and making loans without complying with licensing requirements or state protections in the borrower’s home state. State regulators, notably in Kansas, New York and Colorado, are beginning to enforce state usury and small loan laws against lenders making loans online to state consumers. • Payday loan applications made online expose consumers to privacy and security risks as bank account numbers, Social Security numbers, and other personal financial information are transmitted to lenders, often over unsecure web links. Privacy policies do not protect privacy. • Federal electronic banking laws and industry self regulatory rules for use of the Automated Clearing House (ACH) system do not adequately protect consumers who use electronic fund transfers to borrow and repay loans from bank accounts.
This report presents estimates of the legal permanent resident (LPR) population living in the United States on January 1, 2012. LPRs, also known as “green card” holders, are immigrants who have been granted lawful permanent residence in the United States but have not yet become U.S. citizens. Estimates of the total LPR population and the LPR population eligible to apply to naturalize are tabulated by country of birth, state of residence, and the year LPR status was obtained. Data for the estimates were obtained primarily from administrative records of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The methodology used for the 2012 estimates is similar to that used in previous DHS estimates (see Rytina, 2012). In summary, an estimated 13.3 million LPRs lived in the United States on January 1, 2012, and 8.8 million of them were eligible to naturalize. The majority (61 percent) obtained LPR status in 2000 or later.
Thus, for the interim, the participants of the Fifth International Workshop-Conference on GDM endorsed a motion to continue use of the deﬁnition, classiﬁcation criteria, and strategies for detection and diagnosis of GDM that were recommended at the Fourth Workshop-Conference. Those guidelines are reproduced (with minor modiﬁcations) in this article in APPENDIX Tables 1 and 2. he Fifth International WorkshopConference on Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM) was held in Chicago, IL, 11–13 November 2005 under the sponsorship of the American Diabetes Association. The meeting provided a forum for review of new information concerning GDM in the areas of pathophysiology, epidemiology, perinatal outcome, long-range implications for mother and her offspring, and management strategies. New information and recommendations related to each of these major topics are summarized in the report that follows. The issues regarding strategies and criteria for the detection and diagnosis of GDM were not reviewed or discussed in detail, since it is anticipated that the Hyperglycemia and Adverse Pregnancy Outcome (HAPO) study will provide data in mid-2007 that will foster the development of criteria for the diagnosis SUMMARY AND RECOMMENDATIONS — The invited lectures, topical discussions, and posters presented at the conference and the invited manuscripts that appear in this issue of Diabetes Care served as the basis for the following summary and recommendations.
