Assistance for Bio-data or
Curriculum Vitae (CV)
Curriculum Vitae is an outline of a person's educational and professional history, usually prepared for job applications. Another name for a CV is a bio-data or résumé. It is the most flexible and convenient way to make applications. It conveys one's personal details in the way that presents the person in the best possible light. It is a marketing document through which a person is marketing to "sell" his or her skills, abilities, qualifications and experiences to the employers. It can be used to make multiple applications to employers in a specific career area.
There is no "one best way" to construct a CV. It can be structured as one wishes within the basic framework which can be written on paper or made available online.
Often selectors read CVs outside working hours. They may have a pile of 100 CVs from which to select five interviewees. It is evening and they would rather be in the pub with friends. If a person's CV is hard work to read like unclear, badly laid out and containing irrelevant information, they will just ignore it and move on to the next CV. Hence, treat the selector like a child eating a meal. It is always wiser to chop the CV up into easily digestible morsels (bullets, short paragraphs and note form) and give it a clear logical layout with just the relevant information to make it easy for the selector to read. If one does this, he or she will have a much greater chance to be selected in the interview.

Scientific review is the evaluation of work by one or more people of similar competence to the producers of the work. It constitutes a form of self-regulation by qualified members of a profession within the relevant field. Review methods are employed to maintain standards of quality, improve performance and provide credibility. In academics, scientific review is often used to determine an academic paper's suitability for publication. Review works can be categorized by the type of activity and by the field or profession in which the activity occurs, e.g., medical review.
