Hey, there won't be much difference between CV and resume if you're a Ph.D.

Resume is more like a description of your experience and highlight of your skills and specialties. It's often used in industrial job application. It could be very detailed about the projects you have worked on, but usually limit in length - 1~2 pages.

CV is a chronicle arrangement of your professional experience. It could be as long as you want. Usually it is used in academic settings. But scientists in industries also use CV.

As far as I know, a resume is shorter than a CV. A resume is a summary of your career with the highlights, mostly 1-2 pages long. Whereas the CV is a longer and more comprehensive document. I think it includes all you experiences and can be several pages long.

It also depends in what areas you are applying. Academia and higher research institutions mostly ask for CV, where businesses ask for a resume.
"You can give somebody a book on 'How to ride bike' and then test that person on that knowledge. Even if that person gets an "A", it doesn't mean that he or she can ride a bike."
---this is what I am telling myself when I get a bad grade....as long as you don't loose your passion, you'll be fine.....V

The primary differences between a resume and a curriculum vitae (CV) are the length, what is included and what each is used for. A resume is a one or two page summary of your skills, experience and education. While a resume is brief and concise - no more than a page or two, a Curriculum Vitae is a longer (at least two page) and more detailed synopsis.

A Curriculum Vitae includes a summary of your educational and academic backgrounds as well as teaching and research experience, publications, presentations, awards, honors, affiliations and other details. In Europe, the Middle East, Africa, or Asia, employers may expect to receive a curriculum vitae.

In the United States, a curriculum vitae is used primarily when applying for academic, education, scientific or research positions. It is also applicable when applying for fellowships or grants.

The majority of job applicants should use the standard, two-page-maximum resume. It is what most employers want to see.

But if you are a senior executive, a lawyer, professor, physician or scientist, then you will likely opt to use a CV. That is because the latter document can be much longer than two pages in fact it should be lengthy, impressive and highly detailed.

Hi,

Resume is usually used for job application in the industry

CV is more normally used for job application within the academic community


But, in asia, these two are commonly used interchangeably.
