    I recently received an email from a professor from an old institution I attended years ago asking if I had an academic resume of sorts. The professor has agreed to complete the evaluation for my PharmCAS application previously.

    I do not have an academic resume. I have attended more than one institution due to moving every couple of years because of my husbands job. I have no idea how to begin or what I should even say to my professor.

    Should I state that I do not have an academic resume due to the number of schools I have attended or should I send a rough draft of one? What the heck would an academic resume look like? I am old please help :) I do not even know where to begin. Any advice will be appreciated.

    And here is a link to some templates, but this is less professional than the others so tread with some caution:

    Here is another link to templates that is rather specifically targetted, but hopefully you can still find some use for it!

    An 'academic resume' is an interesting request. Are you sure he didn't mean a CV? Almost everything I'm reading declares a distinction. It's entirely possible he wants the content of a CV (research, positions, education) with the format of a resume (only 1 page)? Or perhaps it's an industry standard I'm not aware of--I'm still an undergrad! Regardless, it should be more than just a list of classes at school, it's a professional document tailored to the opening (in this case, your application). It may include things like relevant classes, important positions on teams, relevant research, experience, or volunteering.

    Hope this helps!
