- Activities List all the clubs that you have been active in. If this includes officer positions, list those too.
- Travel: Some of this may already be covered in the Background section. Don't include tourist visits here, but list study abroad experiences. Include the cities, states or regions, and countries alphabetically. Briefly describe the experience and the duration of your visit.
- References or Letters of Recommendation: This optional component is for listing the people who you asked to write recommendations for you. That is, you must have the permission to use people as references. Include the person's name and title. You may also use a general phrase here, such as "references available on request"
CV Format - Examples of Section Headings
Depending on your background and your area of specialty, there may be other sections you would want to include when you format your CV. This may also depend on what the purpose of your CV is. For example, if your CV is for job searching, you may include one set of information, but of the CV is for admission to a graduate program of study, you may want to include different information. Here is a list of other section titles that you may consider for your CV:Degrees
All other college studies
Research Study abroad
Travel (non tourist)
If you have done any design work or artistic work of any kind, you would also include a link to your online portfolio on your CV. This is common for user experience designers and web designers, as well as human factors engineers and others that would have a design style they might want to showcase.
