Resume or CV

Senior year and you want to get a job......

This page should be used for Davidson students who want to know what a good resume looks like. The average time spent reading a resume is 12 seconds!

Notice that skills and abilities should be placed very prominently. The purpose of this page is to show you what areas of your background you should highlight. The careers office does not have many examples for biologists and a business resume is not appropriate for most biology jobs. The style/layout of these resumes has been changed for WWW reasons and all names have been changed. Therefore, we present:

Resume #1

Resume #2

Resume #3
