Know the difference between CV & Resume
What is the difference between Curriculum vitae (CV) and a Resume?
A curriculum vitae, or CV for short, is not the same as a resume. Many people use the two terms interchangeably, but there are some important differences you should be aware of.
The primary differences between a Resume and CV are the length, what is included and what each is used for.
A Resume is a one or two page summary of your skills, experience and education. While a resume is brief and concise - no more than a page or two, curriculum vitae is a longer and more detailed synopsis.
Curriculum vitae includes a summary of your educational and academic backgrounds as well as teaching and research experience, publications, presentations, awards, honors, affiliations and other details. A CV gives the employer a bigger picture of you as a person as well as you as a worker.
