First Resume

Your resume should contain at least the following information:

  • a list of relevant courses taken
  • a description of your research interests
  • information that shows you are a responsible person; this could be past jobs
  • two or three references—for example, teaching assistants in laboratory courses recently completed or in progress. 
  • Inclusion of grades is desirable but not mandatory.
