Hi everyone, I have a question regarding the resume writing. I am going to apply for PhD in literature field this year. I worked as a translator and translated a book from English to another language for a publishing house. This year my translation was officially published. My question right now is how/where I should list this translation work. I searched online and found that many people think it cannot be listed under the "Publication" column since the translator is not equal to the author. I think this concern makes sense to me but then I have no idea how I should list it. Besides, I am wondering whether I need to add some introductory words to the book (eg. what the book is about) while listing it in my resume. My concern is that I actually do not have other publication (such as articles) so I guess elaborating a little on it might be a way to show my ability in languages and knowledge in humanities. But I know that many people say an academic resume should be brief. Can anyone give me some advice? Thanks ahead
Hi there, so I am currently doing my CV and I need some help. I'm applying to an MA in Art History, specifically to study Contemporary Art. Right now I volunteer for this art group that puts on art shows. I have helped them with advertising, choosing some of the art, brainstorming with the theme, and helped set up for the art show. I don't know if I should create a section called Exhibits and include the art shows I have worked. I was not the curator, just helped out with opinions, so should I include them anyways? Also is it bad to have bullet points and sentences? Or should I just stick to one? I have heard from people that bullet points are bad for CV's but I can't find that anywhere online. As for the sentences should they be short, or could they be long? It's a bit confusing with all of the different CV examples out there. I tried finding some good examples and the ones that I've found from Art History professors never even explain their Professional Experience or anything else, they just list it. I come from a BA in Anthropology, so I feel like I do have to make comment on what I was doing.
I'm applying for a summer research program in bioengineering (BE) to see if I want a PhD in BE. For the program, one lab asks for a CV. I do not have any prior research experience in BE, however I have been attending weekly talks to learn topics in BE. The summer research program will provide us fundamentals of BE research so no prior research experience is needed. I will get my master's in cell biology and entrepreneurship in 2021. What does a BE lab look for in our CV?
Hi ? I am Contract Monster Slayer of Purgatory, yet you're all free to truncate my name however you wish, so long as I know you're referring to me. Anyway, this is my first day here on Grad Cafe in what I hope is my first and only year as an applicant. Then again, I've got quite the story, so I could be here a while. But hey, you tell me. Here it goes... STORY TIME (Read on if you want more detail/Skip if you don't) I am a former M.A. philosophy student/TA. I departed from my program without graduating for two reasons: (1) Incompatibility with the program in terms of research interests; I was essentially training myself to be a professional philosopher to the extent that I was self-directing my entire thesis. As for (2), I got caught up in some political B.S. that occurred within the department walls. Long (vague) story short, I got reprimanded for defending myself against some violations of both the student conduct code and workplace harassment policy. To paraphrase the Dept. Chair, "I brought attention to the people that said these things" during a seminar and work hours, mind you. Simply said, I didn't want any affiliation with this program anymore. In the end, I left the department with an exacerbated anxiety disorder, insomnia, and a meager 3.0 GPA. I had to leave. POST-DEPARTURE Unconvinced that my GPA defined my talent level, I immediately began a writing project intended for (non-graduate) academic conferences. Consequently, and please let me know if none of this means jack, I garnered acceptances to two regional conferences and one more invite (2+1= 3) via an unpublished blog post submitted to the public philosophy workshop at UNC-Chapel Hill intended for early career philosophers (if I remember correctly). Thus far, then, it would appear according to my CV that I've been active in some corner of academic philosophy since leaving my previous program. Though, it's worth mentioning that I'm not done yet, as I've expanded and submitted my project for review at an open access journal (fat chance at this point in my development, I know) and I plan on writing at least one more project for more conference presentations, though hopefully more as I have a few projects on my mind. ADDITIONAL (QUICK) DETAILS I have three LOR writers: Two from my most recent undergraduate institution and one from my previous graduate institution. WHAT I WANT TO KNOW Have I improved or in some way restored any chance of moving onto the Ph.D.?
