Resume/ CV

What is the difference between a resume and a CV?

A resume and CV are very similar. They both showcase relevant experiences. They both need to be professional looking and easy to read. They both can be used to highlight your education, research experience, professional experience, professional organizations, volunteer experience, skills and more. The only main difference is that resumes are only 1 page long, short and sweet, whereas CV’s have no page limit and are mainly only used for academia and research positions.

Here are some resume tips.
