I have been on the social science academic market for a couple years, and I have been invited to interview and put together presentations ("job talks). I thought in both cases, the presentations were interesting and thought provoking and I wonder if i should include them in my vita.I have an "invited lecture" section already, so my thought is just to add them, but is that unorthodox? I would love to hear your thoughts on this.
Edit: From the perspective of applied social sciences (e.g., social welfare / social work)
No, a job talk is not the same thing as what is considered an invited presentation and should NOT be added to your CV. An invited presentation is connotes something much different -- that is, something that is akin to a keynote or a presentation at a formal conference / meeting. Keep your CV clean and don't reach for things that don't belong. I see lots of recently minted PhD's trying to work things into their CV to make it appear weightier than it really is. Don't water down your CV with activities or products that don't belong.
