Resumes and cover letters allow you to illustrate to a potential employer that you are the best fit to their posted job description. CVs allow you to demonstrate to graduate schools that you are experienced and invested in your field. You must be strategic in what content you include. You can determine the way a reader perceives you based on the information you provide.
Your resume is often the only picture a recruiter has of you, your abilities, and your accomplishments. Recruiters typically spend 20 seconds or less scanning a resume.

The CV can include relevant coursework, research, academic projects, presentations, publications, and conference participation.
