From the Back Cover
You've received your bachelor's degree and after careful consideration have decided to continue your education at graduate or professional school. When you get your application, however, you are stymied by the requirement to send a curriculum vitae. You've heard of it, but you thought only hopeful college professors had to have one. And you certainly have no idea how to go about writing one for yourself. You are not alone. Many applicants are surprised to find that what used to be required of academic job seekers is now essential for undergraduates applying to graduate and professional schools as well as those seeking employment in research, teaching, or management.
How to Prepare Your Curriculum Vitae provides an in-depth explanation of the components of the curriculum vitae as well as step-by-step instructions for condensing your career history into a concise biographical sketch that underscores your assets.

In addition, this newly revised edition includes:

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Not only do the samples lack substance, they are poorly organized. The samples do not contain the information that should be in an academic resume.
As other reviewers have said, don't waste your money.It is true that there are many examples on the internet, it is also true that many of these are just as lousy as those in this book. It's hard to find a good book on the topic.
