How to Write a CV resume for Education Jobs

In the United States submitting an education resume for a position in an academic setting is no longer accepted.  Many institutions require a Curriculum Vitae (CV). A CV is a summary of your educational and academic background. The length can range from two to four pages.


A CV should present a clear and well-organized statement of who you are, what you know, and your abilities in the field. Your goal is to make the committee want to interview you.  So, what should you include on your Curriculum Vitae?  Let's review how your CV should look.


Applicant Info


The top page should include your information. Your name, address, phone number, any additional phone numbers, and email address.


Objective


The objective statement is your first impression. Before writing your objective, you should become familiar with the requirements of the educational position. Tailor your statement for this specific position. Tell the committee why you feel competent to teach.


Education


List your credentials and articulate your skills. Provide information on the degrees, licenses, and certificates that you have earned. The name of the institutions and dates you received your degrees should be included.


Professional Experience


The basic information should include where, what, when, you have taught, date and your title; i.e. teaching assistant or instructor. Include additional experiences that are related to teaching, research, or tutoring; even if it is volunteer work.


Research Experience


Briefly describe any postdoctoral, doctoral, or undergraduate research. Include both substance and techniques employed.


Publications and Presentations


If you have substantial information this section can be divided up.  In publications include any books, abstracts, reviews, or other publications you have recorded. Papers and presentations will include dates and locations with titles of your presentation. It is standard to list the name of your thesis title; if completed.


Honors and Awards /Grants and Fellowship


Start this section with awards you have received. You can also add research-related and dissertation-supported grants awarded. If you have a lot of awards and less grants; you can omit a title. Use your strengths by listing all recognition received.
Optional Sections


These sections can be added to your CV if you have information to add:

  • Membership and Professional Organizations
  • Languages Spoken
  • Scholarly Associations
  • Travel or Study Abroad


Take inventory of all you have to offer and include your best on paper. Your ultimate goal is to stand out so you can be called in for an interview.
