Re-Thinking Your Next CV

The CV or curriculum vitae is the academics version of a resume. Whether you're in academia, industry, or looking for your first job, this presentation provides some good advice for building an online CV or an online presence. My favorite pieces:
  • A blog to share your thoughts
  • Linkedin to connect
  • Facebook to engage
  • And connect them!
Other important points:
  • Design the CV - i.e. give it some thought, don't just throw it together
  • You can still you "old" media
  • Include a video - great advice!
  • Show off your skills!
