CV / Resume

CV and Resume both are the most common terms in the recruitment industry. CV is a shorthand abbreviation of Curriculum Vitae. Curriculum Vitae is a Latin word that means “course of life”.  Both CVs and Resumes are referred to as a document that includes information about your achievements, experiences, and personal details. Both help you to get into the interview conversation. Yet, there is a minor difference between both terms. A resume is a one- to two-page document presenting key facts about your professional experience, educational background, and skills. A CV (Curriculum Vitae) is a longer document that details the whole course of your career. A resume is used for job search, a CV—for academic purposes.
