What is a CV, what does CV stand for and why do I keep seeing it instead of resume?
CV stands for Curriculum Vitae, which is a multi-page document that outlines in greater detail your academic history, accomplishments, and accolades. It is typically required for other countries outside the United States of America. In America, all you need is a resume.
There are three differences between a resume and a CV
- Length – A resume is confined to 1-2 pages. A CV is a multi-page document.
- Purpose – A resume is meant to be edited to match the job description a jobseeker is applying for, whereas a CV remains a static and unchanged synopsis of a jobseekers work history, academic career, and accomplishments.
- Layout – A resume is formatted to be a short, easy to read and digestible bullet point list. A CV is formatted in a chronological outline of one’s career up until this point.
