… you’ll want to include
- Your name and contact information: address, email, various phone numbers.
- Educational history: Note undergraduate and graduate degrees with schools and dates. If you haven’t received your final degree yet, be sure to note the expected date of graduation (or Ph.D. defense).
- Research and teaching interests (either grouped together or in separate categories). But be honest. What could you teach tomorrow?
- Dissertation: Most people include the title, the name of the dissertation director, and a three-sentence description that captures the topic, angle, and significance of the project.
- Work history (usually teaching experience): List relevant positions of responsibility and paid employment.
- Awards and fellowships.
- Publications: If you have published your work, excellent. But remember that a stunning dissertation can also win the day.
- Conferences and presentations.
- Additional experience: service, committees, volunteer work.
- Memberships in professional organizations.
- List the names of faculty members and others who have written letters for you. Include contact information for your university placement service (if they have your letters, etc.).
