CV example for PhD candidates
32, Pinedale Road, Exton./03936 firstname.lastname@example.org
I completed my PhD in cognitive psychology in April 2016. My thesis was well received by the profession and led to a number of high-profile speaking engagements at conferences and other meetings, where practising psychologists wanted to hear about and discuss my work. I am therefore well versed in speaking to large numbers of people, creating and delivering PowerPoint presentations and answering questions. During my six-year period of study I worked in several bars and a couple of restaurants. These jobs enabled me to earn money to help finance my study and meet my living expenses. They also gave me lots of experience in dealing with people from all different walks of life.I am able to quickly build a rapport with people, put them at their ease and deal diplomatically with any problems. Since gaining my PhD I registered with an agency that supplies lecturers to universities, teacher training colleges and other establishments providing higher education, and I have successfully completed a number of temporary postings. I believe this demonstrates my ability to go into new situations and environments, quickly take control and carry out my remit. In addition to my academic qualifications I am also a qualified Neuro-Linguistic Programming Practitioner and have used the skills I have learned through this to coach members of my family, friends and fellow students. I like to keep fit; I run regularly and take part in medium-distance community events. I play the cello to relax and enjoy any reading; this gives me a break from my chosen field of practice.
