In my CV I want to know whether the following ordering of the categories is suitable. I thought of giving prominence to research work because I am applying for a PhD.
- Personal Details (name,address,e-mail)
- Career objective
- Conference presentation
- Research Interest
- Work Experience
- Co-curricular activities
- Extra curricular activities
Is the placing of Research Interest okay? Should I move it up? Where should I keep it?
As Career Objective should I write in general what I plan to do i my career once I finish my PhD or should it include the particular area that I am trying to research as my PhD. Say the specific field in applied mathematics. For example: Should it be,
Applying for admission into X university’s Doctor of Y program. or
Career objective : Become a leading researcher in the area of Z and contribute to the betterment of society
