What is a CV?

A curriculum vitae, or CV, is a resume used to apply for academic teaching or research positions.  In countries outside the U.S. it is common to hear the term CV instead of resume.  Each country has different expectations for what is required in a CV so it is important to research the country specifically.

Like a resume, your CV will summarize your education, experience and accomplishments targeted to a specific job.  Academic CV’s differ from resumes in the additional material they include and their focus on research and teaching; international CV’s  often include more personal information and greater detail than American resumes.
