I recently gave a presentation on the research that I have been conducting with my group. It was a group talk. We all talked for 3-4 minutes, for a total of 10 minutes. This talk was the end of the Summer REU presentation. How can I add this to my CV in the presentation and talk section? Thanks!

    Is that really worth to add in the CV? Jun 16, 2022 at 2:19

    You probably shouldn't. A 10 minute talk really doesn't sound like something that should be on a CV.

  • How long is your CV? If it's a one-page CV, I wouldn't bother, but if you're including more detail for each position held you could put it in the section on duties/responsibilities.

There is no point in adding a single presentation/talk to your CV.

However, if you really want to do it, one way to go about it is to add a responsibilities section for each workplace and below the current one state something like this: academic research presentation. However, reading this on your CV hiring manager will more likely assume that you gave more than one presentation.

I.e.: Workplace: University/Institute X | Position: Researcher | Responsibilities: my other responsibilities, n-th responsibility) Academic research presentation

    Presentations are often added to academic CVs. However, these are presentations at conferences and such and not internal presentations. Unless someone asks for this (and unfortunately some institutions do), I wouldn't add a presentation to my CV unless I don't have any scientific publications.

  • I have a couple of presentations ( mostly an hour talk) in my CV that I gave on my own. This was the end of the project talk that I thought might look good on my CV since it was in front of many people. From everyone's suggestions, it seems like it is not worth adding it to the CV.
