I spent - quite unsuccessfully - hours of researching the internet for the following question and I am hoping to get some advice here.
I am soon finishing my PhD in computer science and I decided to leave academia for the industry (not industry research).
I am not clear about what to include in the CV. I currently structured it like this:
- Work experience (including teaching positions and internships)
- Selected Honors, Awards & Fellowships
- Programming Skills
- Selected journal publications
- Selected Workshops, Schools & Conference Talks
which in its current version results in a two page CV.
I am neither sure about the ordering of the above items as well as the importance of each.
For example while I have ten publications I only mention two of them in the CV. On the other hand I mention about eleven Workshops, Schools & Conference Talks. I think this is not the right balance. On the other hand I am not sure how much companies (like Facebook, LinkedIn, ...) care about theoretical publications. I also do not mention any research visits I did.
So my question is, what academic information do you include in a CV for non academic positions and how important is each of the items?
