Let me convince you why you actually need a curriculum vita well first off it has a great ability to just help you organize yourself you see what you have done you can talk to professor’s and others about what needs to be there so again you use for site instead of hindsight it helps you plan your career path you may have some career chosen that you really want to do but I recommend everybody have a plan a and a plan B and then plan in parallel you know if you do plan a fantastic if you decide to do plan B you’ve planned for that one as well or maybe you’re going to do B now and a later whatever so it helps you plan when you ask somebody to help you write your personal statement or to advise you you give them that and they see the best way for you to yourself with what you’ve done you also give this CV to whoever you’re asking for a letter of recommendation because I can always write a better letter if I know even more about the student.

I may say they took my class and this is how they did but in speaking to philip knowing that he’s doing x y and z IC q r and s i can write a better letter and because you’re going to need this document for the rest of your life you’re going to add to it constantly and this is a document you will keep for the rest of your life so this is a website undergrad advising calm that i put up a few years ago it has three credit categories undergraduate advice pre-health advice and pre grant advice this is what it looks like and if you go here under undergraduate advice advice for everyone you’re going to see that there’s a video up there right in the middle on how to convert a resume to a curriculum vita and right below that it says dwell o hybrid cv template it’s a word document you can download it you can erase what i have written input your information in and you will have good formatting.
I use this particular format because it’s what faculty use at my university i like students to do it as if they were a faculty member because then when somebody looks at that they go my sophisticated way ahead of the game just because i’m on this page you can see at the bottom to that i have the all-important elevator speech and i’m going to jump in with that for just a minute here so what you see what is the elevator speech so say you’ve gotten to go to a great conference and you’re at the conference center or you’re all staying at the hotel and everyone’s waiting in front of the elevator and someone looks at your name tag ends as though I’m see you or you know at the University of Wisconsin this is a research conference what do you do now if you haven’t thought this and you don’t have something clear and concise to say you may stutter and stammer.
Let’s talk about the essay let’s let’s quickly I’m going to spend two minutes reading this essay I would like all of you to read the essay and note down whatever you want to about the essay okay so just give me two minutes I am reading it please you do that as well yes has everybody read the essay okay so thanks before I write my essay nz give feedback to Chatsworth and I tell you on the points from this essay on how to construct an essay would you like to share any doubts any questions that are coming to your mind at this moment is there any doubt any problem at this stage from your own essay or from Ashford says it anything you would like to ask me yes there is any doubt so far anything you would like to ask.
So I am assuming there are no doubts let’s carry on so Chatsworth I think it is a fairly good job there it’s not a very bad job not not not bad per se there are the s some areas where improvements could be done and I will talk about those okay so there are a couple of doubts which I see let me just have a look at this they shall just come to this point next and I mean what were the confusions yeah what all things were you confused on see you got confused whether democracy is good or bad okay okay I’ll come to that Yogesh first tell me what are the different forms of governance yeah so you are saying the difference between democracies and other governments tell me what are the other forms of governance barýþ that is a good thing that you did I haven’t read your essay but I think that is the right way to go.
So Swedish for you and for Yogesh you and I guess maybe the rest of you are maybe not aware of this communism is not a form of governance guys so when we talk of communism the comparables are capitalism and socialism and these are not forms of governance these are economic forms these are forms of economy who as forms of governance as correctly pointed out by Swedish our monarchy oligarchy as well as democracy okay so communism is not a governance form it is a Economic Forum okay but let me first come to the governance forms okay so yeah guys I agree that you know if you had given examples like like Yogesh is saying like I guess even Aravind is saying that would have been a good idea if you had the knowledge if you had the content that is why initially when I started the session I talked about the importance of content had you had the examples I would have you know even loved the essay a lot but even if I look at this essay now in front of us it’s a fairly good essay with Rushworth has written it’s not bad he’s tried to distinguish on the basis of one population and to diversity of population in terms of democracy versus monarchy right so it’s not a very badass it’s a fairly decent essay for a first attempt so but let me talk about what else could have been done.
