HKing90 Posted January 26, 2017 Share Posted January 26, 2017 Hello everyone! I'm so thankful to have recently stumbled upon this site in the midst of my graduate application madness. I feel rather silly for asking this question regarding my CV, but I can't seem to locate my answer on the web nor was I ever taught how to assemble one while pursuing my undergraduate. I've looked at a few of my undergraduate professors' CVs and, of course, they only list jobs/ positions they've had that were related to their field as they've a plethora of experience. Well, I've never been employed in a position that was directly related to anthropology. I've only my education, honors/ awards, my bioarch field school experience, and my semester-long internship experience to list on this CV. As a somewhat recent B.A. graduate, it's hard to have much to list other than that. I have, however, been employed outside the university setting for over 10 years and have a pretty stellar resume. Do I list this work experience on my CV to take up a bit more space (and not look like I haven't worked a day in my life outside of college) or should my CV only list things that are strictly related to academia/ my experience within anthropology? The professors that are writing letters of rec for me would like me to send them my CV, AND my graduate application requires it as well. I'm rather embarrassed that I don't know this answer, so I kindly thank you all for your input! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
