Perhaps your dim view of you paper isn't because it isn't good, but rather a reflection of your growth in the field since you wrote it. You have more knowledge and higher standards now. Your old work may seem naive now, though it didn't then, and it might not to other readers. Yes, I'd list it in grad school applications. As you say it shows some ...

FYI: I did not reference the name of my supervisor advisor at all in my industry-targeting resume. I do realize this may be different in CV-land. I personally wouldn't use any honorifics in the CV. (Next you'll be asking about assistant versus full professor!) Just convey the information, the name. I would opt for FI, LN. I.e. Advisor: D. Linger. Keep ...

Is the journal peer-reviewed and does it have even a small degree of scientific respectability? If the answer is no, maybe you should consider leaving it out. If the answer is yes, keep it. This might be an additional evidence of research experience It is. ...I published it at the beginning of my sophomore year (I doubt the admissions committee ...

Tl;dr: Put (published) conferences papers that are subsequently published as journal articles in both sections of your CV. A journal article is a publication, as is a conference paper, regardless of whether the article was derived from the paper. Each publication is a contribution to science, so list both on your CV, they're both accomplishments. You can ...

You should ask the organization specifically what is appropriate. It might be fine, but I know of other such international collaborations in which it is specifically forbidden to claim authorship. The work is attributed to the committee as a whole, by name. An additional reason for not doing this is the question as to whether it is a creative work on your ...

Actually, I think that the way you did your doctorate implies that you can, in fact, learn the things you don't know now. In fact, you may have more skills than you realize, but I'll leave that aside. But first, the courses you took in the past are nearly irrelevant to the process of getting a job once you have a doctorate. The skills, yes, but not the ...

Personally, I'd like to say I would ignore such a mistake, and indeed my eyes would likely skip it. But if I noticed it, it would raise my brows. I'd suspect that either you are not using a spell checker on an important document (which would make me think less of you), or you've ignored some warning given to you (and spell checkers in fact do give lots of ...

Given that this is Germany, where titles are a serious business, you might consider doing both. ... Herr Somebody (now Doktor Somebody). It is partly for identification, I think, and the current title might be helpful.

Depending on the field, and the importance of conferences there, you could list them in one place (the more important one), and note the other. For example, under conferences: "Bitcoin Hopping", Third Witty Conference, 2018. Published separately in Witty Journal, 2019. But if journals are more important in the field, then in the journals section: "...

We cannot update submitted applications with new SOP or CV or other information. Unfortunately, this means that you will not be able to update your application due to the regulations of admission. Thus, overthinking it will not help but to make you uncomfortable. Regarding to your situation, there are two possible scenarios I can think of: The ...

There is a power dynamic in the application process that any applicant needs to be conscious of. There are only a small number of positions for a large number of applicants, which grows to be a very large number at elite institutions. In other words, there is a significant power imbalance to the detriment of the applicant. The consequence of this is that ...
