What Makes a CV Strong?

Content & Clarity: Putting everything in one page, the CV should clearly outline your academics and work history, with a focus on experiences relevant to the specific course you are applying for. This includes quantifiable achievements and results whenever possible. List educational background, including relevant degrees, certifications, and skills clearly.

Structure & Presentation: A clear and easy-to-read format is essential. This includes consistent fonts, headings, bullet points, and white space. Use relevant tables, short sentence lengths and data to quantify the impact created.

Proofread: Proofread multiple times, ensuring no silly errors which can create a negative impression. Poor grammar and improper formatting can put off admissions committees. Take advantage of tools like Grammarly to make sure that your CV is free of any grammatical errors, missing punctuation and is easy to read.

What is the difference between a CV and a Resume?

While both CV and Resume are used in applications, they have some key differences:

  • CV is usually used for academic purposes, like university admissions, professorships and research fellowships and grants. It is usually 1-2 pages long and emphasises your academic and extracurricular activities.
  • Resume is usually used for professional purposes, most commonly for job applications. It is usualy 1 page long only as it is a summary document of your professional achievements, career trajectory and skills.

For university applications, usually a CV is preferred but either may be used interchangeably.

  • Summary: A CV gives information about your academics, professional achievements and extracurriculars, all in one page. This helps admission committees evaluate your profile holistically.
  • Highlights your impact and achievements: A CV allows you to highlight your achievements in academics and other aspects clearly with the help of relevant data points.
