Curriculum Vitae or Resume

A curriculum vitae (CV) is similar to a resume.  In the United States, applicants for jobs in research, education, and medicine frequently use a curriculum vitae.  In England and Europe, job seekers more commonly use curriculum vitae instead of a resume.

resume has less information and is, therefore, shorter than curriculum vitae.  Most resumes are one or two pages long.  For job seekers in the United States business sector, a resume is more effective in getting interviews with hiring managers who spend just seconds reviewing a resume.

This following example is a skeleton of curriculum vitae.  If you replace your information with the information in this example, you will have written curriculum vitae.
