If you haven't updated your CV within the year, then it is time to do it! Often, we only update our CVs when applying for jobs or going up for an award or promotion. The downside of this approach is that we often forget noteworthy accomplishments over time.
Refreshing your CV allows you to:
Follow the steps to keep your CV up-to-date and ready to go!

2. Decide on a Structure: Identify Headings and Heading Order
Headings often include: Education, Research Interests, Professional Employment, Teaching Experience, Research Experience, Publications, Presentations, Honors & Awards, References (if applying for a job). They may also include: Qualifications/Skills, Grants & Fellowships, Institutional Service, Certifications, Professional Associations, Current Research, and Community Involvement.
