Update Your CV

If you haven't updated your CV within the year, then it is time to do it! Often, we only update our CVs when applying for jobs or going up for an award or promotion. The downside of this approach is that we often forget noteworthy accomplishments over time. 

Refreshing your CV allows you to:

  • Act quickly on job positions, as well as grant & professional development opportunities.
  • Take stock of your career trajectory and identify gaps in your research, teaching, and professional experiences.
  • Re-write your CV for the positions you want or consider having multiple CVs to suit different purposes.
  • Keep an up-to-date online profile (for example, on LinkedIn or our institutional repository) so that potential collaborators may find you.
  • Highlight your most important achievements and record your most recent activities that you may forget later.

Follow the steps to keep your CV up-to-date and ready to go!

1. Update Your Personal Contact & Education Information

2. Decide on a Structure: Identify Headings and Heading Order

3. Update the Information under Each Heading 

4. Proofread for Consistency and Errors
