First Year Job Materials
Here are some materials used during my first year on the job market (2016). I was selected for first round interviews for these jobs, so I guess I did something right, though most didn't lead to offers. These are intended to be helpful examples, but they are so, so far from perfect, so please seek out other info before you use them! (And please don't cite/circulate these docs as if they were published works - they're just templates at this point.)
(You can copy this spreadsheet if you want a template for keeping track of job apps!)
This is what my CV looked like in my final year abd. It's changed a lot since then, but might be useful if you're just starting your academic career.
Here are two resumes that I used to apply for library jobs. I can't in good faith leave you with the first one since my perception of what is expected has changed so much!
