Anyone willing to share their resume with me?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! I'm having trouble formatting my resume for graduate school. I've looked up samples online and they each have a different layout. I'm not sure if there is a "standard" format they would want it and I also don't want to look like an idiot if I have anything too out of the ordinary! Any advice for writing it or could anyone share theirs with me? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!!

Here are some tips I was given in undergrad: 

  • Forget about everything you bragged about in high school. Only include what happened in your undergrad unless it was something so significant. 
  • It doesn't have to be "basic". It should match your personality and have some flare but should be easy to read and not cluttered. 
  • If something isn't relevant and doesn't fit, don't include it. 
  • Highlight skills you have learned through your experiences that would be what they are looking for in a grad program.

All this being said, don't fret too much about it. Look up a template online and honestly just follow it. I would have a professor (I asked my English professor) look over it for you. They might be able to eliminate wordiness and give you additional tips to making your resume stand out. Your resume isn't the only thing. My resume was probably pretty lackluster compared to some but here I am, in my first year of grad school. You could always go to the career services (or something equivalent) if your school offers it. Professors are also a good resource considering they have probably updated their own resumes a million times! 

Best of luck! Don't stress too much about this one piece of paper!

If you want anyone to look over your resume, I'd be happy to! I actually worked as a Career Advising Assistant in undergrad and got experience critiquing resumes and cover letters. There isn't necessarily "one format" for resumes, but if you're looking for a formatting outline I really like the one here: https://www.unh.edu/career/resume-template

Hi. I recently applied for a job and was also looking for resume and cover letter samples. I understand you, as everyone wants a good resume that can guarantee a good position. There is a very good service where you can find samples for different industries, whichever suits you best. My employer didn't want a resume without a cover letter. Asked my friends, unfortunately they couldn't help, I had to look for one myself and I found it, I recommend it.

My best advice is to look them up! Google search terms that I've used so that I only get actual pdfs of resumes and CV's:

  • "SLP resume" filetype:pdf
  • "SLP CV" filetype:pdf

Most of the ones you'll get are for professors - while yours won't be as extensive, these are the people that are evaluating your application so they'd be good to emulate.


You could also see if the school(s) you're applying to have any samples or advice. These are KU's:


General advice:

  • Resumes and CVs are slightly different. Be sure you know which you'll be submitting. CVs are used most often in academia, and tend to be longer. Resumes are used most often in industry, and are usually 2 pages or less.
  • In SLP, it's best to stick with APA if you're going to be citing any of your work. If you're a first, second, third, etc. author on any papers, you'll want to bold your last name.
  • Anecdotally, you should include key things that the program looks for in their applicants. You'll usually find this on their homepage. Do they really push interprofessional teamwork? Highlight that in your bullet points. Do they really want their students to focus on evidence-based practice? Highlight your experiences with using evidence to make decisions in your resume.


I've already doxxed myself to the moon on this site, so here's mine: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1uRJlskRwQPcEsX4vY7h6RY91yCn99CIDczV0UKfN2rw/edit?usp=sharing

* please don't plagiarize, my CV is published on my website so it would show up in plagiarism checkers, I'm just linking it as a potential resource. Absolutely feel free to borrow the formatting, though!

DM me if you'd like me to look yours over! I don't check my inbox as often as I should, but I promise I'll get around to it!


I would never claim to be an expert, so please take everything I've said here with a grain of salt.

Привет. Может ли кто-нибудь поделиться образцом резюме и сопроводительным письмом? был бы очень признателен ☺️

As I said, there is a good service that I tested. I searched for a long time for a suitable sample resume with a cover letter and found them here http://skillroads.com/samples, so that it was suitable for the industry where I was going to work. The employer really liked my resume and hired me quickly enough.
