Science CV

A scientist not only needs to be highly knowledgeable but also should be creative. Employers look for the demonstration of innovation in science in a science CV. It is no longer enough to simply rely on your academic qualifications as every applicant for the job has similar or even better qualifications.

A scientist helps people understand their world better; the scientist makes it possible for the lay person to understand the intricate details of why things work the way they do in a language that is understandable to all. Thus potential employers look for people with good analytical skills coupled with well polished presentation abilities. Other skills that recruiters look for in scientist’s CV include good communications skills and the ability to work under very little supervision. Shown below is a science CV example.
