     The Difference between a Curriculum Vitae and a Resume 

The primary difference between CV and Resume is the length, the content and the purpose for which they are used.

A CV or curriculum vitae(in Latin) means course of life, it covers a candidate’s entire time line of his career.

A curriculum vitae includes a timeline spanning the career of a candidate including his academics and any personal achievements such as his awards, research papers, presentations and other details as well as work experience and an entire summary of work related skills.

This document covers the entire career of an individual and hence tends to be long, typically more than two pages.


Moreover it remains the same and doesn't vary.

RESUME

A resume is a brief document which covers his name and contact details and precisely highlights the skill set of an applicant and how exactly he is eligible for the job he is applying for and typically is one or maximum two pages in length.

A Resume is a relatively short document of size one or two pages which includes a brief summary of a candidate's  academics, work experience and related skills of that particular job he is applying for, meaning that it can change from one job to another job in that particular candidate’s field of domain.

The length is relatively shorter than CV because the resume is meant to serve as a quick view for an employer and it should help the candidate to have an edge in the competition.

The skills mentioned in the resume change from one job to another job depending on the requirements of that particular job and the candidate should convey how he is best suitable for that particular job.
