The curriculum vitae (CV) is like the resume in academia. I was completely mesmorized by Dr. Haushofer’s CV of FAILURES! She is a professor at Princeton. I was really touched by her CV of failures. She was right you know, failures are often invisible. A lot of my research students don’t understand that. Research in my weird field of physical anthropology usually fails. There is so much failure, nothing ever works!
Due to my current life circumstances of things never going smoothly I’ve decided to share my CV of FAILURES. I’m sure I missed a lot and a lot will be added as I get more rejections for employment in the coming months. But as Dr. Greg says, “You’re such a persistent little shit.”
Until then, enjoy.
I’m sure you’ve experienced failures! Please share your CV of failures below!
