Essay exams

"What this handout is about

At some time in your undergraduate career, you're going to deal with essay writing companies .

The goal of this handout is to give you some easy and effective strategies that will help you take control of the situation and do your best.

Why do instructors give essay exams?

Essay exams are a useful tool for finding out if you can sort through a large body of information, figure out what is important, and explain why it is important.

A CV is longer

"What is a Curriculum Vita?

In the United States, a curriculum vita, often called a CV or vita, is used when applying for academic and research positions, fellowships, and grants.

Note: The term CV is also used in many foreign countries to describe a résumé. Keep in mind, overseas employers often expect to receive personal information that would not be included on a U.S. résumé such as a photo, place of birth, nationality, gender, number of dependents, and marital status.

A CV is longer than a résumé (at least two pages) and represents your accomplishments, areas of expertise, and professional skills in a detailed and organized manner. It is best to discuss any special CV formatting your field may require with a mentor or trusted member in your department (i.e., faculty member or adviser) or you can order cv writing services. As with a résumé, you may need different versions of a CV for different types of positions."

"In a perfect world, you wouldn’t need a rresume writers -- You’d be out sailing the Mediterranean, exploring the outer galaxy or basking in the sun in Cozumel, cold drink in hand.

But since the world isn’t perfect and almost everyone needs a job, you have to create a winning resume that stands out from the crowd. Gone are the days when an acceptable resume featured flush-left, block-style type that began with your education (from high school on) and included your hobbies, health, age, and marital status. Just as the employment market has changed, so too have resumes, evolving from a one-size-fits-all standard.

Whether you're a candidate for the position of CEO, district sales manager or staff accountant, your resume must highlight your skills, accomplishments, and work experience in a way that distinguishes you from the thousands of other candidates flooding company mail boxes, fax machines, and e-mail addresses.
