We hear this question all the time. And based on how similar the above definitions above are, it’s easy to see why there might be some confusion. The main difference between a resume and CV is the length and amount of detail. A resume layout and its content is meant to be selective and concise. That means one page (maximum three for senior roles). By contrast, a CV outlines your entire educational and professional history, along with major accomplishments, publications, and other credentials, so it is almost always more than two pages in length. In general, a resume is used when applying for jobs in the private sector, whereas a CV is used for jobs in the public sector, especially academia. We’ve developed a separate guide so you can learn more about the differences and see a comparison of resume samples and CV samples.
Always be sure to personalize and customize your resume so it reflects your skills and abilities and connects them with the jobs you are applying for. Your finished product should be a unique reflection of what you can bring to the job -- not a thinly revised downloadable template. It’s also a good idea to get into the habit of customizing your resume for every job application. Even if you’re applying for similar roles at different organizations, each employer will have its own requirements and priorities.
A customized section of your resume that lists key achievements, skills, traits, and experience relevant to the position for which you are applying can serve dual purposes. It highlights your relevant experience and lets the prospective employer know that you have taken the time to create a resume that shows how you are qualified for the job.
