Student CV Instructions
To assist you in preparing a professional curriculum vitae for intern jobs, residency
applications, or scholarship applications and other uses, the UCSD SSPPS faculty have
developed a Student CV template, a Sample Student CV and a sample cover letter to
accompany your CV when preparing your application materials.
Save the Student CV template to your computer. To start your personal CV, use the
"save-as" feature to save your personal CV to your computer without overwriting the
original template. Rename this new document and with your name and CV. Note that the
Student CV template is simply a guideline. Create your CV to highlight your personal
situation and activities. Sections can be moved around to highlight your strengths.
Unused sections should be deleted - but you will have the Student CV template to refer
back to should you need to add sections in the future. Also make sure to delete the
disclaimer and the instructions that are embedded in the template.
The Sample Student CV is a compilation of several student's CV's. It is not meant to
represent one student and is not an expectation for you. It is to provide examples of how
to represent and format your activities.
The faculty advisors have agreed to be available to meet with their student advisees to
review their CVs. If you wish to take advantage of this offer, please contact your advisor.
