Frequently asked questions
A resume and a curriculum vitae (CV) are two documents that job applicants use to secure a job or position. A resume summarizes a job applicant’s data, educational background and training, skills, and professional achievements. The best resumes are customized for a specific position. Resumes also allow job seekers to communicate who they are and why they are uniquely qualified for a particular position. CVs also showcase accomplishments and experience. However, resumes and CVs are distinct. CVs require more information than your typical resume. They focus primarily on academic achievements since they are commonly needed for education, academia, science, and research positions and for applying to grants and fellowships. Because CVs are used for these types of positions, they tend to include more detailed descriptions of publications, presentations, research, and the like.
