A few questions about writing a good CV:

- How much detail should go into rotation-specific activities? I've heard everything from no detail at all to every gory bit.

- What about detail on other activities (i.e., job responsibilities, class officer/similar positions)?

- Where do posters go? I feel weird grouping a poster at a conference in the same heading as an inservice I did as an intern or with peer-reviewed publications.

Any input is appreciated, so thanks in advance.

Outside of one research project (an elective) I did not put any rotation stuff on mine. I put job responsibilities under "Professional experience" and class officers and stuff under "University Service" Publications when under "Publications" and posters at conferences went under "Abstracts" I would not include any poster that I presented as an inservice.

I can send you a copy of mine to check out if it'll help

Posters should be in a separate section.

For job/organization responsibilities, keep it short. You want a max of 3-4 bullet points for each job/organization. If you're still a student, apply the same rule to your rotations. If not, just list the rotations you had.

I have a question for those who've been out of school awhile. How long after graduation do you keep your student activities on your CV?

Thanks for the advice. That would actually be pretty helpful if you could sent it over.

Thanks!
