It is important to know yourself-your strengths, weakness and expectation. It is also extremely important to communicate the information to the prospective employer. DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CURRICULUM VITAE AND RESUME People usually do not make any distinction between curriculum vitae and resume and use both the term interchangeably. Though both are list of relevant information of a person seeking employment, they are different in terms of their formats and usage. While a curriculum vitae (CV) represents in-depth and structured information about the professional experience and qualification of a person, the resume is a skeletal representation of what would otherwise be given in details in curriculum vitae.

Since a CV is long and detailed, it allows the individuals to list all the achievements and awards received even in the distant past. Based on the criterion of length, a CV may extend to there-four page depending on the age, experience and achievements of a person. ‘Resume’ is French word, which means to summarize. It is one or two page summary of the skills, experience and educational qualification. It is always brief, concise and customized to fix the requirement of the prospective employer or organization.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
