Today's medical students invest large amounts of time and energy into building what is believed to be the ideal résumé to ensure admission to residency programmes. In this clinical lesson, we present three Dutch pre-graduate medical students who approach CV-building and the perceived pressure to be a typical overachiever on paper in different manners. In addition, we conducted a survey among the heads of 160 Dutch residency programmes. Based on this, we discuss whether what is generally believed among students to be necessary for admission to residency programmes is in agreement with what heads of Dutch residency programmes report their selection of successful candidates to be based on. The influences of millennials' world view and today's medical culture are included in the discussion, leading us to the conclusion that a substantial mental and cultural shift is necessary on multiple levels to significantly change the way in which medical students approach CV-building.
