CV Vs Resume

Difference between CV and Resume

1.CV
A CV (Curriculum Vitae, which means a course of life in Latin) is an in-depth document that can be laid out over two or more pages and it contains a high level of detail about your achievements, a great deal more than just a career biography. The CV covers your education as well as any other accomplishments like publications, awards, honors, etc.

2. Resume
A Resume, or Résumé, is a concise document typically not longer than one page as the meant the reader will not stay on your record for extremely long. The aim of a resume is to make a man or woman stand proud of the competition.
