What should I write for my curriculum vitae?

  1. Mar 1, 2013 #1
    I am currently in my 3rd year of physics and I wanted to do some research with a professor. I have emailed him and he said that I need to provide him with a transcript and a cv. But I have no experience doing research at all. So what do I include in the cv?

    Everything about yourself that you think is important and not in the transcript.
    The prof will realize that you have little or no experience.
    You may want to say how passionate you are for the subject, and why, in a short covering letter. Be precise.

    I know it's scary. It's best to be honest and take the consequences.
    Best advise will come from the profs other research assistants or grad students.
