Why is your Curriculum Vitae (CV)Important?

One of the major concerns I get from recruiters is that applicants simply do not know how to develop or design their CV. A CV is simply a comprehensive overview of your educational background, teaching philosophy, and research experience. What I have found is that many potential instructors feel that they do not have the experience needed to be documented on a CV. After all, a CV is around 5-12 pages in length. Though the length is true, one can be shocked at what information can be found when asked some simple questions so the length is actually a null point.

So, do you have a CV that can wow a decision maker?

At Daniel Zimmerman Consulting, Inc, we offer a CV review as well as a CV overhaul that is geared to help you get that teaching position.

What you will get is a :

  1. A complete overhaul of your resume/CV – grammar, style, keywords, and more
