I'm cobbling together my first big girl Academic CV, and I'm currently checking its formatting against a few samples from professors who were kind enough to lend theirs for reference. I know I shouldn't be comparing myself to them, since I'm all of 26 years old and these dudes have been doing impressive, scholarly things for literally as long as I've been alive, but HOLY SHIT YOU GUYS. I SUCK. MY CV IS SO SAD AND BASIC. I AM AN UNEMPLOYABLE, UNACCOMPLISHED BABY PERSON.

(I know, I know, I'm being irrational. I just needed to feel my feelings of inadequacy for a hot second)

UPDATE: Completed, mine is 3 pages. And that's with some... generous formatting decisions. LULZ.
