A Curriculum Vitae Owner's Manual : the Best Reference on the Market for Those With A PhD, MFA, MD, DDS, and A Whole Lot of BrainsBook - 2011
This book is organized into three main sections. The first section, The CV OWNER'S Guide, to quote Fräulein Maria from the Sound of Music, starts at the very beginning, because it is a very good place to start. Start here if your are a true beginner to the art of CV writing. The second section, the CV STYLE GUIDE, provides folks with all the requisite tools and advice they'll need to start drafting, or redrafting, a CV. The final section of the book, CV SAMPLES includes multiple CVs from just about every discipline imaginable. We've even included interdisciplinary examples, professional résumés, dual program CVs, as well as condensed and transformed CVs to meet candidate's special needs (not all CVs are used for job seeking). Find a CV in your discipline, or find one with a look and feel that appeals to you and make it your own. There's no right or wrong way to use this book, so find whatever section is most useful to you and begin the work of creating or recreating your CV. If you already have a job and are using this book to recreate your CV for tenure of other purposes, we say welcome and skip adead to whatever section you'll need to begin your work.
