Academic CV that Stands Out from the Crowd


Why You should engage me


One of the unique hurdles for academics is the delicate balance between detail and accessibility.

Your CV needs to be comprehensive, showcasing not just your publications and grants but also your teaching philosophy, mentorship, and contributions to your field.

A strong CV must be straightforward, engaging, and catch the eye of busy recruiters or hiring managers who sift through hundreds of CVs.

Additionally, there is an evolution in the academic job market. Academics are increasingly asked to demonstrate their expertise and ability to collaborate across disciplines and present their research.

This service is not just about writing; it’s about understanding the unique language of academia, the nuances of different disciplines, and the evolving landscapes of academic institutions.

It is about positioning you not just as a candidate, but as a thought leader, an innovator, and an invaluable asset to any institution.

Your CV is more than a document; it is your academic portrait.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you tailor a CV for different academic roles, such as research-focused positions versus teaching-focused positions?

I tailor a CV for research-focused positions by prioritizing publications, grants, and research experience, highlighting academic contributions. I emphasize methodologies, findings, and collaborations. In contrast, in teaching-focused roles, I highlight pedagogical experience, curriculum development, and student engagement methods.

Using strategic categorization and concise descriptions, I showcase a broad range of academic achievements without overwhelming the reader. The key contributions or impacts of publications can be highlighted by grouping them according to type (e.g., peer-reviewed articles, book chapters).

As well as organizing conference presentations by topic or significance, I emphasize noteworthy venues and invited speakers. For research projects, I provide concise summaries of objectives, methodologies, and outcomes, prioritizing those most pertinent to the position being applied for.

How do you incorporate teaching philosophy and pedagogical achievements into an academic CV?

A succinct statement outlining your core beliefs about education and its role in nurturing student growth is incorporated into your teaching philosophy.

I explain what courses you taught, how you taught them, and any innovative approaches you used in the section entitled “Teaching Experience.”

As pedagogical achievements, I present student feedback, teaching awards, or relevant curriculum materials. Quantifying impact where possible, citing improvements in student performance or engagement.

This involves clearly articulating the nature of the engagement or project, its significance within the academic community or relevant field.

It also involves any tangible accomplishments or recognitions. Additionally, I highlight transferable skills and competencies honed through these experiences, demonstrating their value in educational settings.
