As the data science and research verticals expand, more and more researchers are reconsidering academic careers in favor of lucrative, cutting-edge jobs in the private sector. In academia, applications for research positions generally ask for a long-form CV. Private sector research jobs, on the other hand, are all about research resumes– and yes, there’s a difference. Our new infographic breaks it down.
Research resumes are a little different than the traditional scientific CV many researchers learned to prepare in college. They’re less informative and more businesslike, and for academically-trained research professionals that might be a little adjustment. We hope this infographic has clarified some of the intricacies of research resumes. If you want to get matched with top research jobs with fast-growing firms, we can help.
