Resume and Curriculum Vitae. Know the difference.

May 28, 2019

Have you ever applied for a job and a resume was required? It is pretty easy to determine what a resume looks like and the information contained therein. But what about a Curriculum Vitae or CV (pronounced Curriculum "vee-tie").


A resume is a one or two-page document that sums up your qualifications for the job(s) you are interested in obtaining.  A resume usually contains 4 main components which are:

1. CONTACT INFO: Job seeker's name, address, phone numbers, and email.

2. QUALIFICATIONS: Relevant and impressive qualifications for the desired position, presented at the top of the page, directly under the contact information.

3. WORK HISTORY:  Present and/or past employment, including dates, companies, job titles, and relevant skills and accomplishments.

4. EDUCATION: Highest level of education completed.


Curriculum Vitae is somewhat different it which illustrates a summary of your experience and skills. Typically, CVs for entry-level candidates are LONGER THAN RESUMES – at least two or three pages. CVs for mid-level candidates who have amassed NUMEROUS PUBLICATIONS tend to run much longer. CVs include extensive information on your ACADEMIC BACKGROUND, including teaching experience, degrees, research, awards, publications, presentations, and other achievements. CVs are thus lengthier than resumes, and include more information, particularly details related to one’s academic and research background.


When presented with the opportunity to provide a CV, do not hesitate to use it if you have the credentials. Otherwise, present a clean, crisp succinct resume. is a great place to get started. Click here -
