The Difference Between A Resume And A Cv. I Bet You Didn’t Know! by Ignyte(m): 9:20pm On Aug 16
Dear job seeker, even thoughyou use both words interchangeably they don’t mean the same thing. Read below and stop living in Ignorance.

CV
A CV can be easily mistaken for a résumé, however, there is a notable difference. A résumé is supposed to be carried by applicants with no relevant career experience or no experience whatsoever. On the other hand, CVs are to be carried by candidates with relevant experience.
Format of a CV
A CV normally includes the following elements −
Name − Full name of the applicant without general salutations like Mr., Ms.
Address − the permanent address.
Summary − a brief description of what you have achieved in your profession.
Academic Qualification − your academic qualification
Additional Knowledge − Skills you have acquired beyond your profession.
Acquired Skills − Soft Skills
Programming Languages − if any
Software Tools − Software tools you use in your profession (MS Word, Excel)
Operating System Platforms − operating system you use (Windows, Mac)
Database Management System − if any
Personal Skills − soft skills
Experience Breakdown − detailed explanation of your experience
Achievements & Interests − Hobbies. Achievements in professional life
Declaration − stating all information provided about the applicant as true.

A résumé ( /ˈrɛzʊmeɪ/ , REZ -u-may or
/rɛzʊˈmeɪ/ ; less frequently /
ˈrɛzjʊmeɪ/ or /rɛzjʊˈmeɪ/ ; French:
[ʁezyme] ), [a] also spelled resume ,[1]
is a document used by a person to
present their backgrounds and skills.
Résumés can be used for a variety of
reasons, but most often they are used
to secure new employment. [2]
A typical résumé contains a
“summary” of relevant job experience
and education , as its French origin
(and its translation into Spanish as
“resumen&quotwink implies. The résumé is
usually one of the first items, along
with a cover letter and sometimes an
application for employment, which a
potential employer sees regarding the
job seeker and is typically used to
screen applicants, often followed by
an interview .
The curriculum vitae (CV) used for
employment purposes in the UK (and
in other European countries) is more
akin to the résumé—a shorter,
summary version of one’s education
and experience—than to the longer
and more detailed CV that is expected
in U.S. academic circles.
Generally, the résumé is substantially
shorter than a CV in English Canada ,
the U.S. and Australia .[3]

Fair enough on the entry level – experienced hire angle but the bigger distinction is in length and use.

CV is longer and more detailed, like a profile you submit to the National Assembly when about to be nominated for a political position.

Resume is shorter and compressed, like that of a job seeker.

So someone can have both a CV and a resume depending on the purpose.

In any case, they are most times used interchngeably and there are cultural prefeences too. It is more popular to use CV for both in Nigeria (and many other countries), resume is more popular in other countries

This is so wrong. The major difference between them is the bulkiness of content. CVs are more detailed and explicit and is not bound by number of pages while a resumé is lighter in content and is only required to highlight previous positions and roles carried out.

Another thing to note is that CVs are more required in the academic fields as it requires detailed academic works, researches, conferences attended alongside their timelines.

Actually, there is NO difference between a resume and a CV. The difference: One is American English (Resume), one is British English. Any other differences are imagined.

i see clean formatted CV and Resume here and presumably PDF format

I had an experienced with a HR man who said most of the time applicants are not called is because they didnt submit their CV/Resume in MS Word for their software to capture data easily.

I wonder how these CV format here will hold when opened in another system and probably another version of MS Word
