Resumes

First Resumes

Resumes have one humble but important job: to open a door and get you an interview.

To create a draft resume, access our Resume-Guide.

Resumes for Co-op and Internships

In your first resumes, include your college and your high school, and any work or other experience that you have had that will allow a potential internship or other employer to form a sense of your skills. If you completed an N.U. in program, make sure you include that as well.

After Graduation Resumes vs. Co-op or Other Undergraduate Resumes

Your after-graduation resume should be different from your coop resume. It should target specific positions and summarize relevant past accomplishments and results with both qualitative and quantitative statements.

What is a CV?

A curriculum vitae, or CV, is a resume used to apply for academic teaching or research positions.  In countries outside the U.S. it is common to hear the term CV instead of resume.  Each country has different expectations for what is required in a CV so it is important to research the country specifically.

Like a resume, your CV will summarize your education, experience and accomplishments targeted to a specific job.  Academic CV’s differ from resumes in the additional material they include and their focus on research and teaching; international CV’s  often include more personal information and greater detail than American resumes.
