Guest Blog: Resume or CV? Know when to use each to get the job you want.

By Nicole Garrison

When applying for a new job, you want to do everything in your power to make a good impression and increase your chances of getting hired. While there are quite a few things which can help you achieve that, the most important one is related to the way you present yourself.

While many people might not be aware of it, both resumes and curriculum vitae are quite similar but also hold certain differences. These can play an important role in your search for employment. In order to help you succeed, here are some things you should know about both.

What is a Resume?

A resume is a document that describes certain qualities of an individual in a brief manner. It is generally no longer than a page and it aims towards offering the reader enough and important information.

The good thing about a resume is that is can carry a lot of information in a very short length. In addition to this, because of its short length, it is easily modifiable for every niche and every job one wishes to apply for.

What is a CV?

A CV or Curriculum Vitae means the course of life in Latin and serves the purpose of showcasing exactly that. A much lengthier version of a simple resume, the curriculum vitae can be made up of many pages. Thanks to this, the applicant is able to include a lot of details that can easily be overlooked in a resume.

Not only is it possible to include more personal information about one’s interests and other activities, but they are also able to include their whole professional career. Lastly, this document is also organized in chronological order and should be updated frequently.
