I moved to a new area recently and found a Master's program I'd love to attend. How do I land a job at this university, so I can attend in the future, after having accrued some free course 'credits' in the system? [more inside]
I'm updating my CV to submit with a book chapter proposal. I'm entering into a graduate program in the fall (already accepted, paid the deposit, etc.). If I were enrolled in classes at this very moment, I would include this in the education section of my CV with an anticipated date of completion...but right now what I have is an anticipated start date. Do I include it, and if so, what's the appropriate way to represent my situation?
I am going to defend my Ph.D. in a few months. That means I really need to be applying for jobs. But I haven't touched my C.V. in months--years, probably--because every time I think about it I get overwhelmed by waves of anxiety and despair and impostor syndrome. How do I get past that and update the damn thing so I can start sending it out? [more inside]
Making a fancy CV/resume for grad school application (a masters in art education). I got my BA 6 years ago (sort of unrelated field), I took a class semi-related to my field of interest last summer at a good university. Is it odd to list this one course in the education section of my grad school resume? Do I list my grade (which was an A)? Where would you put it?
