Resumes and Curriculum Vitae (CV)

I have worked with both resumes and CVs on a routine basis since 1997.  While CVs have remained fairly constant in that time, resume writing has changed a great deal.  Career objectives are out, executive summaries are in, narratives have been replaced by bullets and lists, and the chronological resume is no longer the only (or even the best) option.

If you’re unsure what the difference is between a CV and a resume, and don’t know which you need, please check out my blog post.

Proofreading is provided in all resume and CV services.

CV writing – $40 per hour
If you’re at the starting point and need to create or recreate a CV from scratch, I have a framework to help you gather the information necessary.  I have built CVs for people just starting their academic careers, as well as those who have been in the field for many years.

If your institution has a standard format that you can provide me, your end result will match that.  If you are not yet with an academic institution or are in the process of changing, I have a very nice format that covers all the bases.
