What is the difference between CV and resume?
A cv is a curriculum vitae. It's focus is on your education experience -- where you have been published, where you presented at conferences, the courses you've designed and taught, etc.
A resume lists your job experiences.
In the UK (where I'm from) we always say "CV". In the US, people normally say "resume" - although I believe in certain fields such as academia, "CV" is also used.
But in either case, it's a job-seeker's profile, listing essential information (contacts etc.,) employment and educational history, and other relevant information.
The format can be adapted to suit the applicant's situation (reverse chronological, functional, or a combination of the two) and often contains an objective or a skills summary at the top under the heading and contacts.
It gives great scope for highlighting relevant skills and experience to match the requirements of the position - so many savvy applicants don't just use the same resume over and over, but tailor each one to a specific job application.
They say that you only get a few seconds to grab a reader's interest - so it makes sense to put the most compelling information where it will best be noticed.
Resume comes from the USA.
It was "invented" because American employers didn't want to, or didn't have the time to read a long CV.
So they started to ask for a smaller, less detailed but more concise summary of your experience and education.
A resume is generally 1-2 pages and a cv is 2 pages or more.
Many companies (especially in the US) want a resume even when they ask for a CV, because they think it is the same.
If you need a lot of education for a job then you probably need a CV.
Some countries expect a CV no matter what the position.
