Resumes

Resumes and CVs (curriculum vitae) communicate your life experiences to reviewers, including things like education, professional work, volunteering, and awards. Different academic and professional fields have different expectations for these documents. For national awards, your ONS advisor can offer you specialized advice for how to organize and format your resume or CV.

For general advice on how to get started with a resume or CV, please check out our resume tips sheet. Make sure to do your own research and have someone take a second look at the document before you submit it.
