mxborder Posted September 28, 2015 Share Posted September 28, 2015 I've been working on changing my resume into a more academic-style CV for grad school applications. I know these can vary widely between disciplines, so I've posted this in Art History specifically as opposed to in the general app forum. I'm applying to PhD programs after graduating with a BA and working for a few years doing museum work. I've looked up sample CVs, CVs for POIs, etc. but obviously many of the sections that make up the bulk of their CVs (publications, conferences, etc.) are not something I have a ton of. I've read it's not uncommon that a CV for an incoming grad student would read more like a hybrid between a resume and a CV, but I'm wondering what specifically the formatting of that looks like.I think I'm doing OK with my headings--I have, in order, Education, Academic Achievements and Awards, Professional Experience, Research and Internships, Projects (this would include an upcoming presentation at a non-academic conference, curatorial projects, "extracurricular" art-related stuff I've done since graduating), potentially Publications (but I might incorporate this into "Projects" since these are art-related but not peer-reviewed academic journals--exhibition catalogue essays, art reviews for an online mag, etc. Opinions on this being its own section?), and Language. What I really want to know is what does it actually look like! I'd like to give some details about what I've done in my job experience, internships, research experience, etc. but I read bullet points in CVs are taboo. So should it just be 1-2 sentences, in full sentence format, about each? If anyone has any samples of CVs for someone applying to grad school, without yet having a ton of publications or scholarly CV items, I would really appreciate it!
