FAQ

Should I put the graduate students whose work I assisted with as first author or myself?
You should talk with your faculty mentor to determine the order of authorship.  Generally speaking, if you created the poster – list yourself first, but make sure to credit the appropriate people you collaborated with.

Can I add my poster presentation to my CV?
Absolutely - if you are presenting at a local, regional or national conference.
