A Resume is a tool for marketing yourself, it’s the primary means by which you can present yourself and try to assert that you are the best candidate for the program or project.
A resume drafted for academia should highlight research and teaching experience, publications, awards and scholarships, professional associations and licenses, awards, and any relevant pieces of information that determine you are the most suitable applicant for a department or research position.
The importance of a properly written academic resume
The intention of the resume is towards getting the interview. The resume should make an impression on the reviewer and make you outstanding from others. If perfectly prepared, a resume can be your acquaintance. Always highlight your positives, and emphasize on negatives. But never ever provide any phony info in your resume.
