Résumé/CV Guidelines and Samples
The résumé/CV (curriculum vitae) should be interesting and informative, but not too long. Allow the reader to get a quick picture of your skills and experience.
Information should be well organized and, in one or two pages (longer only if you are very experienced), provide a clear picture of your education, career and personality.
