What is the Difference between a Curriculum Vitae and a Resume?


Curriculum Vita (CV)

  • What is it?  A summary of your educational and academic backgrounds as well as teaching and research experience, publications, presentations, awards, honors and affiliations.
  • How long should it be?  There is no page limit.
  • What is it used for?  Typically for graduate school and academic positions including faculty openings, assistantships, and internships; also grant, scholarship and fellowship applications.

Resume

  • What is it?  A synopsis of the most relevant professional experiences you have for the particular job for which you are applying.
  • How long should it be?  One to two pages in length.
  • What is it used for?  Typically, you will use a resume when you apply for business, industry, governmental, and non-profit jobs.  The main purpose of the resume is to help you get an interview.  A polished resume is your chance to make a good first impression with potential employers.

What's the difference between a resume and a CV? 

The primary differences are the length, the content and the purpose. A resume is a one or two page summary of your skills, experience and education. A goal of resume writing is to be brief and concise since, at best, the resume reader will spend a minute or so reviewing your qualifications. 
A Curriculum Vitae, commonly referred to as CV, is a longer (two or more pages), more detailed synopsis. It includes a summary of your educational and academic backgrounds as well as teaching and research experience, publications, presentations, awards, honors, affiliations and other details.

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 longer (at least two pages) and provides a more detailed synopsis.
