Graduate Resume and Curriculum Vitae Guide Resumes and curriculum vitae (CVs) are two types of documents used when applying for positions. Although the format of resumes and CVs are fairly similar, there are distinct differences in their purpose, length, and amount of detail. Resumes, the most commonly used of these two documents, are usually used for industry positions. Typically a CV is used for academia and should be used only when one is specifically requested. If you are unsure which document to provide, you may want to contact the organization directly to see which they prefer. WHAT IS A RESUME? Your marketing tool to prospective employers in industry A concise one to two page document that highlights your most relevant experiences and skills tailored to each position to which you are applying Tip: Create a master resume of all your experiences and accomplishments. Use this record to write a one to two page tailored resume for each position you apply for highlighting your most relevant qualifications. WHAT IS A CURRICULUM VITAE (CV)? An academic version of a resume that provides a professional archive of all your experiences related to your academic career For graduate students, a CV is typically a few pages. Length should be determined by the amount and depth of your experiences. A CV should then be tailored to the position you are applying for by ordering your sections from most to least relevant Use your CV as a professional archive and keep it updated with all your accomplishments Tip: Consider consulting with a faculty member or advisor for advice and feedback on your CV because they often serve on hiring committees and have experienced an academic job search. TO GET STARTED WITH YOUR RESUME OR CV:...
Sample CV for DMA Students The Basics The curriculum vitae, also known as a “CV” or “vita,” is a comprehensive statement of your educational background and your teaching , performance, and research experience. It is the standard representation of credentials within academia. Your CV should include a comprehensive list of the teachers you have studied with, as well as any master classes you have participated in. Include all relevant performance experiences, beginning with undergraduate study. This should include solo and ensemble performances. You will probably want to subdivide into categories such as orchestral experience, solo recitals, chamber, concertos, piano, voice, etc. Sometimes you may need to list specific performances (ex: Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni, November 2010), but other times it will be best to simply describe your role (ex: Principal Cello, University of Illinois Symphony Orchestra, 2008-2010). If you do not include comprehensive performance experiences, your CV will appear weak when considered next to a candidate with complete information. The CV is only used when applying for academic positions in four-year institutions. Do NOT use a CV when applying to community colleges; use a resume instead. There are no length restrictions for CVs, but be certain that all the information you include is relevant. Formatting Your CV must be well organized and easy to read. Choose an effective format and be consistent. Use bolds, italics, underlines, and capitalization to draw attention. List all relevant items in reverse chronological order in each section. Strategically locate the most important information near the top and/or left side of the page. In general, place the name of the position, title, award, or institution on the left side of the page and associated dates on the right.
Sample Curriculum Vitae Use only the sections applicable to you. Each discipline is different in the format and sections used. Ask a professor in your field for a copy of their vitae and see what information they have listed. Most important is to keep formatting consistent throughout. Write in first person but do not use personal pronouns. Unlike a resume, a vitae is extensive and can be multiple pages. Vita D. Kerr Contact information for home, office or both Department of [Department], [University] If used, the summary statement could substitute for an objective. In reverse chronological order, with most recent degree first. Could also be titled Fellowships or Internships or Residency. Could also be called Licensure. Could encompass all experience or could be broken up into multiple sections such as Research Experience, Teaching Experience, Professional, Consulting, etc.
CV Writing Guide The Curriculum Vitae (CV) is the resume format used by academic professionals to summarize their qualifications for academic employment. The structure of the CV is relatively standard. In all cases a CV should be well designed/formatted, organized, easy to scan and read, and free from typographic and grammatical errors. How do CVs differ from resumes? Characteristics of Academic CVs: • Comprehensive • As long as necessary (for most ABDs, new PhDs and MFAs – 2-4 pages) • Format & style are fairly standard • Used to seek academic positions Characteristics of Resumes: • Focused/Targeted (around a core message) • Brief (typically one page for new professionals) • Format & styles can vary significantly • Used to seek non-academic positions Both CVs and resumes require multiple drafts before they are finished products, should be updated on a regular basis, and should be written with the target audience in mind. In both cases, you may need more than one resume or CV; depending upon the breadth and scope of your job search.
IDE20 Software MS Office for Engineers, Lesson 3 – PowerPoint Document URL: http://ide20.com/upload/ModuleOE/Lesson03.pdf Developer: firstname.lastname@example.org Introduction - Microsoft PowerPoint 2007 Microsoft PowerPoint is a commonly used program for preparing and delivering presentations. It is used in engineering applications to make technical presentations and to create simple graphics. This tutorial will focus on using PowerPoint in such applications. The specific version of PowerPoint covered in this tutorial is 2007. Earlier versions may not be compatible with this tutorial due to the use of the Ribbon user interface. This tutorial provides basic information on a few topics related to creating technical presentations in PowerPoint, for more help consult Microsoft’s Help database (the blue question mark at the upper-right corner of PowerPoint as shown in Figure 1). Figure 1 – PowerPoint Help PowerPoint Basics After opening PowerPoint (Windows Button -> All Programs -> Microsoft Office -> Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007), you are presented with an empty presentation (Figure 2). Figure 2 - PowerPoint 2007 You can immediately start developing your presentation by filling in the content place-holders on the slide shown. The layout of this slide is a Title Slide. The Layout of a slide determines the type of content that can be displayed and how it will be arranged. PowerPoint has several different Layouts available by default. To see the available Layouts, click the Layout button in the Slides pane of the Home tab (Figure 3). 2 Copyright 2010, Missouri S&T IDE20 Software MS Office for Engineers, Lesson 3 – PowerPoint Document URL: http://ide20.com/upload/ModuleOE/Lesson03.pdf Developer: email@example.com Figure 3 - Changing a Slide's Layout Layouts and Slide Selection When you select a layout from this pop-up, the format of the currently selected slide(s) will change to match the new layout. To select a slide, use the Slides tab of the left sidebar. The left sidebar allows you to view a thumbnailed list of the slides in your presentation or switch PowerPoint to Outline mode. For now, we will use the Slides list. You can hide the left sidebar by left-click dragging the divider between the sidebar and the displayed slide. If you drag the divider all the way to the left border of the window the sidebar will be hidden. It can be redisplayed by left-click dragging the divider back from the left border (Figure 4).
GETTING STARTED Microsoft PowerPoint is one of the most popular presentation programs supported by both Mac and PC platforms. Microsoft PowerPoint can be used to create interactive presentations for classroom, business, or personal use. CREATING A NEW PRESENTATION Many of the steps you are about to read are for both PC and Mac computers. Some of the steps have very similar descriptions. For your benefit, this tutorial has combined the information but will offer different screen shots for each system when necessary. OPENING MICROSOFT POWERPOINT ON A PC To launch Microsoft PowerPoint, go to Start > Programs > Microsoft Office > Microsoft PowerPoint 2007 (Figure 1). A blank presentation will open. Figure 1. Navigate to Microsoft PowerPoint on a PC. PowerPoint 2 SAVING YOUR DOCUMENT Computers crash and documents are lost all the time, so it is best to save often. SAVING INITIALLY There are several options for saving your document on a PC. First, you can click on the Office Button and select Save from the drop-down menu. Second, you can click on the Office Button and select Save As. This will allow you to save your document in several formats including the older version (.ppt), which allows your presentation to open in any version of Microsoft PowerPoint. Finally, you can save by click the small blue disk icon to the right of the Office Button. Note: If you want to save your document on and then open it on another computer you must specify a file extension (i.e. .ppt). Usually your computer will do this for you, but if it does not you must do this process while in Save As. Once you have titled your document, you can give it a file extension by clicking in the Format box. Click PowerPoint 97-2003 Presentation for the correct file extension.

Business Letter Format Heading Your Street Address Your City, State Zip Date Inside Address First and Last Name of the Person to whom you are writing Their Street Address City, ST Zip Salutation Body Dear Mr./Ms. Full Name: You do not want to indent when you are using this format. This is the best format to use when you are writing a persuasive letter. You want to introduce yourself and the topic you are writing about to the reader. Remember that the first rule of writing is to know your audience. In a persuasive letter, you state your opinion or your feelings about something that is important to you after you have introduced yourself. You must sound as professional and passionate as possible. You do not want to belittle the reader or they will not finish reading your letter. Your letter needs to have the facts, reasons, and examples to support your position. Address issues that your reader may have in their argument. In a second paragraph, you must have solutions. Without solutions, you are only complaining. Offer assistance in solving the problem. Remind the reader where they can contact you. Sincerely yours, Signature A. Student http://www.scholastic.com

In addition to a strong technical base, I perform well both independently and as part of a team. I communicate effectively with all levels of personnel, as reflected with my experience working with student assistants and department directors on the above-mentioned projects. I would greatly appreciate the chance to work for the National Banking Corporation, and look forward to the possibility of meeting with you to discuss this position in further detail. In the meantime, I can be reached at (212) 555-5555 or you can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your time and consideration.
