Curriculum Vitae (CV) vs. a Resume

The difference lies in the content and purpose.

CVs include information on one’s academic background:
  • teaching experience,
  • degrees,
  • research,
  • awards,
  • publications,
  • presentations,
  • other achievements

A resume provides a summary of

  • education,
  • work history,
  • credentials,
  • other accomplishments
  • skills
  • optional sections such as an objective and career summary
CVs are multiple pages (much longer than resumes).
And include more information, particularly related to academic background.
Resumes are typically one page.
And are very consise.
Used primarily when applying for international, academic,
education, scientific, medical or research positions or when applying for fellowships or grants.
Resumes are requested in job applications.
