CVs, careers, crunchiness …….

220px-LebenslaufCollignonFrancoisNothing specific to Italian Studies here but Steve Joy’s advice on how to present a cv will be useful to Italianists too. He also has a very helpful blog, the Early Career Blog, based on his experience as a postdoc careers adviser in the arts, humanities and social sciences. His topics cover job applications and the structure of cover letters, management of tricky interview questions, building networks and collaboration, describing a research project and so on. Summarising his general message in a single term: crunchiness (vs sogginess) in any description of self, research project, book proposal, and career-to-date is the route to success.
