Curriculum Vitae (CV)

The concise document boasting about your career

Make it with LaTeX! Let it look professional. There are numerous templates that are available at Overleaf, which you can use to make your beautiful CV or you can make your own customized template! There is no hard-bound format, but you can refer to this sequence:
  1. Mention your name, email address, phone number, address, and academic social links on the top. 
  2. You can also keep your passport-sized photo at the top.
  3. Follow this with your research interest in 2-3 lines only.
  4. This would follow with your academic background, mentioning current education (i.e. IISER-X) with the grades and current MS thesis advisor. You may also mention your pre-IISER education.
  5. Include your publications (if any). Follow any one of the academic citation format (such as APA, MLA, Harvard, Chicago, etc.)
  6. Mention your research experience. Here write about your summer research experiences, internships, and MS thesis project.
  7. List your academic skills, and any specific language or software you use relevant to your field of interest.
  8. List any achievements you have.
  9. Mention the seminars, academic conferences, workshops, and courses you have attended.
  10. You may list all the relevant courses from your curriculum if you feel necessary.
  11. Include two referee information and finish up with your co-curricular records. 
Keep font size to 11pt-12pt, and never use a lot of colors in your CV. Keep it gentle to the eyes.
Do NOT include your photo in your CV, unless you are applying to the Europe with the Europass CV format.
 The Most important part: USE YOUR OWN CREATIVITY
