CVs

Both a resume and CV (curriculum vitae) are documents that outline your education, experience and skills.  However, they differ in their purpose and layout.

  • When applying to a job in the U.S., a resume is almost always the preferred document.
  • In many other countries, a resume is known as a CV.  However, the term CV refers to a different document in the U.S.
  • In the U.S., CVs are most commonly used in academic environments, such as when applying to graduate school, jobs in academia, or research positions.
  • CVs are more detailed than resumes and may be many pages long, while resumes are concise, usually only 1-2 pages in length.
  • CVs include more details on academic accomplishments including research, publications, and teaching, while resumes focus on work experiences, education, and skills.

*Note- for details about what to include in a resume, see our Vandal Resume Guide (PDF)

Possible categories to include in your CV:

  • Education and training
  • Research experiences
  • Teaching experiences
  • Work experiences and internships
  • Projects, works, exhibitions, and performances
