WELCOME!

In this issue we bring you a primer on an important career development tool, and a whole lotta events! We welcome your ideas and suggestions - what do YOU want to know more about? Please let us know!

 
  THE DIFFERENCE: A RESUME AND A CV
Why do I need to know?
 
 
Careers CV - CURRICULUM VITAE

A Curriculum Vitae, "courses of life," includes a summary of your educational and academic background as well as teaching and research experience, publications, presentations, awards, honors, affiliations, performances, compositions, masterclasses, major teachers and other details. A CV is primarily used in higher education but may be requested in other settings. As performers, it is important to keep an accurate and complete record of your performance history, repertoire, and accomplishments.

Careers A RESUME

A resume summarizes your skills, experience, and educational background. It presents you in the best light and convinces the employer that you have what it takes to be successful in the new role to which you’re applying. Its purpose is to elicit a response from the reader—an interview or audition! Unless you’re on a strictly academic path, you’ll most often be asked for a resume. Pull the most relevant items from your CV, and add other non-academic experience and skills, to craft a resume that most closely aligns with the position.

A resume will be quickly scanned, not read—so think phrases and bullet points. You have 10-20 seconds to persuade a prospective employer/collaborator to keep reading so overall first impressions are critical. Put your strongest, most relevant, content near the top. Until you have significant professional experience, keep your resume to one page with clean easy-to-read typography and formatting.
