Difference between CV & Resume
- Curriculum Vitae: The course of life;
- Resume: Summary
- While a CV is detailed, a Resume is to the point
- A CV is longer than a Resume. Usually, a CV is two or more pages long while a Resume is essentially one page long.
- A CV can contain some information about other facets of your life such as hobbies and extracurricular activities. A Resume strictly contains information relevant to the job.
- A CV is usually used in USA only for academia and when you are required to apply for a government grant. Potential employers usually ask for a Resume there.
- This means that while your CV when applying to two different jobs could be same, your Resume has to be different, highlighting different achievements in different cases.
