CV vs. resumé – what’s the difference? 

The main differences between a CV and a resume come down to length, what they are being used for, and which country you are in. Although both are used to apply for a job, they are quite different in each others approach.

What is a Resumé? 

A resumé (French for ‘summary’) is a short and concise summary of your work experience, education, qualifications, skills and achievements. A resumé can also include an objective and a statement summarising your career.

A resumé typically only covers one page, but is sometimes acceptable to spill over to two. This type of application is used in the United States and has to been concise and to the point, often using lots of bullet points to ensure it doesn’t go over one page.

Unlike a CV, a resumé isn’t usually expected to be in chronological order and doesn’t have to cover the applicants entire career or education. The resumé has to only contain relevant information and is completely customised to the position being applied for.

What is a CV? 

The CV (Curriculum Vitae) is commonly used outside of the United States, and is longer than a resumé at two to three pages in length – most commonly two pages. A CV would also need to be concise, relevant and to the point similar to the approach of a resumé, but can be more detailed and can contain more information.

A CV will often contain an applicants entire education and work history, along with all skills and qualifications. Chronological order is mainly used for all timelines, and brief descriptions under each role will typically be provided for relevant roles, as well as achievements and results.

The CV can and should also be tailored and customised to the role/industry being applied, however this isn’t as obvious or necessary as a resumé is expected to be. Medical professions sometimes however require a CV to be used even in the United States, as the resumé format would be too small to allow for background and qualifications to be written. When more information and detail is required, the CV is a better layout.
