I’m not sure what you are applying for, but I’m applying for a neuroscience/psychology PhD and my CV was checked over by my mentor. I didn’t include high school awards, nor work experience that didn’t apply to my career. I DID mention software in the same blurb but related it to what I was talking about skills-wise, which looks like this: (Experimental design, collection, and analysis utilizing high density EEG, fMRI, facial EMG, and associated peripheral physiology, data reduction using MATLAB, and statistical analysis using JMP and SPSS. Large-scale management of clinical assessment of anxiety and depressive disorders and outcome project involvement, including poster design and presentation. Literature review and IRB approval process.) etc. And my applicable courses fell into a mix of my interests and theirs, so I made sure they were psych/neuro related (under the mentor’s umbrella) but not necessarily to what my research with them would be.

@Knubbsy-Wubbsy:  I’d think it would be similar then. It’s not like you’re applying to law school, it’s all liberal arts haha.

@Knubbsy-Wubbsy: I just use my CV for work-relevant things, so it only has my undergraduate research experience and my post-baccaluareate research experience. I didn’t include any of my restaurant jobs or anything, so I wouldn’t add it to your CV – at least to psych it’s supposed to be career-specific (from my knowledge).
