Resumes and curriculum vitaes (CV) are documents that give an overall picture of your experience, skills, and other important details recruiters may be looking for – with some minor differences.


A resume is a document (typically one page) summarizing your skills, experiences, and accomplishments. An effective resume succinctly describes your education and experience as it relates to your targeted position.

CV (Curriculum Vitae)

A CV contains more details than a resume and often includes four additional sections:

  1. research experience
  2. teaching/mentoring experience
  3. publications or poster presentations
  4. and references
