Helpful SU Guides for Job Search:
A resume is a summary that includes your education, work experience, and contact information. Employers are looking for the right fit for their open positions. Ideally, it should be only one-page. If you plan to have two pages, make sure it does have notable details as employers tend to avoid them.
Please note: You will notice a term labeled as CV, which stands for curriculum vitae, and is Latin for “Course of Life”. This format is not necessary because they tend to be formatted for careers in the academic field such as colleges; you include your published papers and conferences you have attended.
