  1. Hi everyone! I'm an undergraduate SLP student and I am about to complete my first semester at a cal state since I'm a community college transfer student. I feel behind because I did not put in the effort to meet with professors all semester and get to know them. I participate and ask questions in class every once and a while, but I'm simply just another student. However, I need a faculty member for programs and scholarships to be a recommender by late January. How should I approach them without being too pushy? I understand it's very late & I should have been putting in the effort. Any tips?
  2. Hi everyone, I'm applying for an MPhil program at Cambridge, and am looking for guidance re: CV format. I'm all set on my resume for U.S. programs, but am not sure what the norm is for applying postgrad in the UK. Specifically, should I keep it to one-page like a traditional resume? Or can it be extended, as is preferred by most U.S. grad programs? Are there any things to include (e.g., relevant coursework) or not include (e.g., extracurricular leadership) as opposed to a U.S. resume. Thanks so much!

    CV Questions

    I'm editing my CV for sociology PhD applications and am unsure of two things. Perhaps there is no right answer, but I'd love to hear any advice. 1. Should I create a separate "Research Experience" section or is it alright if I simply put all positions (excluding irrelevant positions like part-time kitchen jobs, of course) under a "Work Experience" section? 2. I have been credited on publications before (e.g. "Research Assistant Esenabla assisted with this piece" written at the end of a report) but I have yet to author my own work. Would I create a "Publications" section for the works from which I have been credited? Or would it be best to simply put this under an "Experience" section? Thanks in advance!

    Resume Help-MPA

    Hello! I graduated in 2015 and I've been teaching in Korea since. I'll be applying to graduate programs for MPA and I could really use some help on my resume. Can anyone take a look at it and give me some feedback please? If so I can PM it to you. Thanks!
  5. Will having any CEU's, CECH's, CHES's, NBCC's etc. help me get into grad school? I'm talking about accredited programs/websites, not MOOC's. I'm willing to pay if it'll help. Also do I attach the certification of completion to my resume (each certification is a page long), and how do I mention it on my resume if I have any completed so far? I'm interested in going for physical therapy school, and want to get some courses on mental health and general health, will this help me at all? Most courses aren't free. I'm still in undergrad, graduating next year, might apply for the next cycle in a few months.

    Princeton WWS App Q's

    Hey guys! I haven't had any luck getting in touch with Princeton's admissions team by email (I suppose I could just call?) but I was hoping some of you might be able to answer my last-minute application questions. First- should the Policy Memo be annotated? Right now I have annotations for all the hard facts I cite and footnotes at the end, but I'm not sure if that will be useful for the admissions team, or even necessary. Second- where on their resume would they want past internships and research assistantships taken during college? Their blog post on this: http://wws.princeton.edu/admissions/wws-blog/item/2015-application-countdown-conclusion-résumé-diversity is kind of vague. My best guess is the "Personal Background" section. Thoughts? Third- also for the resume, do they want a list of "interests" as part of the personal background- like playing guitar and writing short stories? Their blog post made it seem like they want that included but I wasn't sure how to go about it. Finally- the online application has a section for "Publications/Original Work." Could or should this include non-scholarly work- like articles or blog posts I've had published? Any assistance you all can offer will be greatly appreciated!
  7. When I used to work in the UK, I remember how convenient it was to find a job. All that was needed was for you to upload your pdf resume to a website, and recruiters would then call you for potential job interviews. Are there any similar websites available for job seekers in the US? I've heard that recruiters contact people via LinkedIn, so I'll be sure to make an account there shortly. Aside from that, though, all I've managed to find are websites like indeed.com or ziprecruiter.com that use annoying algorithms to extract information from your uploaded pdf resume and put it into a text-based webpage format that inevitably has many errors requiring more editing. Is there a website that simply allows me to upload my resume in a pdf format (and not have it's contents reformatted to fit a webpage), where recruiters can then view that original pdf and contact me if they have any potential offers?
  8. Hello very helpful people! Hope you all are doing well. I've begun submitting my apps—about half way through and have done my top choice because it was due December 1. But on Saturday I found out I've been accepted into a conference for February— a whole other story is how I'm going to prepare for that... My question is: should I reach out to the schools I've submitted my applications to already? I'm going to update my resume and unsubmitted apps to reflect this upcoming conference.

    Resume for MPH application

    Is there any specific way my resume should look when applying to a graduate program? Is there a template anyone can share? Does it have to be super professional? Can it be modern? Can it have a little color or a little personality? I'm applying to the MPH at UCLA and other several schools. Please let me know what ya'll think or how you all did your resume when you were applying to grad school. Just wanted some feedback before I start making changes to my resume. Thank you in advance.
  10. All of a sudden I'm second guessing everything including the CV. So far I've got my degrees, gpas, conferences, work experience, miscellaneous stuff. I'm wondering if you're supposed to put down all the relevant courses you've taken as well??

    Should I retake my GRE?

    I'm a senior applying to graduate schools for Speech Pathology. My major is Health Sciences with a concentration in Communication disorders. I took my GRE and I got a 142 Verbal, 152 Quant and 3.5 writing. I know my scores are very average and I don't know if I should retake them.The minimum for all my schools is 140 Verbal and 152 Quant. My GPA is a 3.6 and I feel my essays are good and my letters will be good. My resume is really packed- I have over 1,000 service hours at many different locations, shadowing hours, I worked at an AAC communication camp, I am the President of a service organization and on the state board for the same organization, I help run the $40,000 Relay for Life event at my school and am on the committee for planning our annual "Day of Service". I also have research experience with a Speech Professor and am a part of NSSHLA on campus and have started an initiative for VocalID in our club. Do you think I should retake my GRE or do you the rest of my application will balance it all out? Thanks for the advice
  12. So here's my issue. I'm about to get my second master degree, the first one a regular MSc and the second one a MRes. Over the course of this time I have conducted and taken part in a number of research projects. All of them have involved extensive fieldwork abroad. Now I am looking for jobs that are related to the practical application of my knowledge. (Btw, I'm in the development field as you can tell from my profile) It was never my goal to stay within academia, but I saw these two masters as a chance to build on my skillset and I am convinced these skills are transferable to the 'applied/practical field'. But this is my dilemma: The last three positions on my resume basically all say "researcher" or "research assistant" in some form. I know that my experiences are more than that, and I want to reframe them so it highlights the "international" and "field experience" aspect rather than the research aspect. Has anyone had do this before, and how did you solve it? Thanks!
  13. I applied to Masters programs last year and did not get in. I am now working as a bachelor level SLP and re-applying this year, updating my resume, taking the GRE again, and re writing personal statements. I was curious if anyone had a really good resume format they liked to use and if they were willing to share it?? I need all the help I can get this time around
  14. Hello everyone, I will be applying for PhD this fall and have some questions on writing my CV. I have attended two summer research programs, both offered external funding sources to fund my stay and research during the program. I did not directly apply to these fellowships; they were automatically offered as I am accepted into the program. However, I was told about the names of the fellowships that are used to support my stay. Should I include this in my CV as a fellowship I have gained, or should I completely leave it out since I did not go through the application? Thank you in advance for your inputs, and best luck for everyone during the application!
  15. Hope this is the right subforum. I'm writing my CV. I contributed a page/chapter to an online textbook in my field; it's an NSF- funded project. It is open for professors of a specific list of the field to contribute to and for students (if professors agree/give permission). What would my official title be? It's hundreds of pages now, but I think the page I wrote is used in a course now. Would it be author, editor, contributor?
  16. I'm applying to the Harvard Kennedy School and they want a weird hybrid resume/CV that's two to four pages in length. I want to highlight some of my leadership positions, but I've only been out of college for four years and I'm a little sparse in that area, especially on positions with fancy sounding titles. I am the low man on the totem poll at my job (research and admin at a highly regarded think tank/magazine). Should I include leadership positions I had in college or would that be going back too far and make me sound a bit juvenile? Another question-- Just last month, I was picked to be a board member of my local PBK chapter. However, since this just happened I haven't really done anything yet and I'm not even up on the website as a board member. Is it worth it to include? Thanks!
  17. Hi, I'm an undergraduate student applying to graduate schools. I have two questions here regarding CV: 1. I did a couple community services (unrelated to my graduate study area) two years ago and have not done any since then. Should I still include these experiences? 2. I participated in a summer research program - should I call my title "research intern" or "undergraduate researcher"? 3. Should I put the date the same line with the title or the place? (I attached the two ways) Thank you!!
  18. In CV, if I want to list a class I took in the fall semester of, let's say, 2014. Should I write out the months, ie: August-December 2014, or simply Fall 2014 is fine?
  19. Hi all, The title pretty much sums it up, when do you think is too early to list a potential publication on a CV? I am in the very beginning stages of working with a former professor on an article and we do plan to get it published. However, this is a continuation of research I have been working on for over a year and have already put a great deal of work into, so I want the effort toward publication to be noticed by the admin committee. Does that sound too much like cv padding? I do mention it in my SOP, but it is difficult to resist the temptation to have a bit longer of a CV as a pre-PhD academia hopeful, I'm sure many out there can relate. Thanks for your help!

    question about C.V.

    I am in the middle of applying for PhD programs and have a question about a C.V. I have a history of changing major (to similar major) when I was in my master program. The first school was one of the Ivy league graduate schools (I was here for one semester and then moved to the second school), and the second one is an unprestigious school. In this case, is it better (okay or normal) to add the fact that I studied at the Ivy league graduate school for one semester in my CV (in the Education Background part on CV)? or do you think it will look bad on my CV? Thanks in advance!
  21. On my CV, I would like to include several "publications", some of which are peer-reviewed and some of which are not. Essentially, I have 4 papers that various organizations I have worked for have posted, one that appeared in a magazine, and one that appeared in a peer-reviewed journal. If I were to list the publications in order of importance, I would put the peer-reviewed paper first, then the magazine, then the other 4. But is that confusing? Is it better to have them in order of date? I would create a separate section for publications and reports, but I think my single publication will look lonely under its own heading. Any thoughts would be appreciated!

    Correct title for CV/Resume

    Hi all! I am starting my PhD program at UNC this fall and was awarded a fellowship. I am confused as to how I write my job title on my CV as with assistantships often times people will put research assistant or teaching assistant. I feel like research fellow is of a more senior status? Do I write PhD student and leave it at that? Also, am I correct in saying PhD student? I read somewhere that PhD candidate is reserved for those that only have to complete their dissertation to obtain their PhD. I'm not even sure if I put this post in the right place on here, but thank you for your time and assistance!

    CV Conference Organizer

    Hi All, Quick question and wasn't sure who to ask. I'm beginning grad school in September. I'm currently applying for a volunteer position to organize a large conference for my department. I have a lot of previous event planning experience (2 years full-time coordinating work for student services in a university) so I think I have a good shot at this and it would be a good networking opportunity. My MA is fully funded (both tuition and living) so I won't be working and should have time to do this. HOWEVER, I'm a bit stuck with what to put on my CV. I won't actually be starting my program until September, however, obviously I want to indicate that I will be attending this institution in the Fall, as the position is only open to students from my future university. Should I just list ... Master's of XX, XX School, September 2016 - present....? Does the same apply for scholarships I have been selected for, but won't actually receive until September? Sorry if this is silly. Thank you!
