HI All,

Just wanted to know if there is any difference between Curriculum Vitae, Resume and Biodata.

As per my knowledge there is..

Resume- To be used by Freshers only

CV- Not a Fresher

Biodata- I'm not sure but it is supposed to be a detailed information of your work. 10-12 pages i guess.

Resume is meant for Experience persons which highlights experience as candidate’s USP, while CV is for freshers without experience which highlights education as their USP.

The primary differences between a resume and a curriculum vitae (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, a curriculum vitae is a longer (at least two page) and more detailed synopsis.A 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. In Europe, the Middle East, Africa, or Asia, employers may expect to receive a curriculum vitae.

In the United States, a curriculum vitae is used primarily when applying for academic, education, scientific or research positions. It is also applicable when applying for fellowships or grants.

A resume is a one or two page “summary” of your skills, experience and education. Generally no more longer than a page or two.

A Curriculum Vitae is a longer and more detailed synopsis. Generally over a couple of pages long.

Bio-Data files concentrate more on the individual and his attributes like height, weight, colour, skin complexion,…and more that describes the person the best.

Bio Data - 2 dimensional (Past and Present). English word - Means "Biological Data" . Used mainly for recruitment that needs biological info like height, weight etc. Example - armed forces recruitment.

Curriculum Vitae CV -2 dimensional (Past and Present). Latin word - Means "Course or Events pertaining to life". Is more detailed than the resume.

Resume -2 dimensional (Past and Present) French word - Means "Summary". Most a single page summary.

Auctor Vitae- 3 dimensional (Past, Present and Future) Latin word - Means "Author pertaining to life events". Emphasis is on the vision of the candidate for the domain with proof of performance embedded in the past and present.

Basic different
- A resume would be ideally suited when experience people apply for specific positions where certain specific skills are more important than education.

- A C.V., on the other hand should be the preferred option for fresh graduates or people looking for a career change. It could also be used by people applying for academic positions.

- The term bio-data is mostly used in India when people apply for government jobs, or for research grants where one has to submit descriptive essays. Bio Datas are not common in the international markets where personal information like age, gender, religion are not required to be submitted by candidates.
