    "Resume CV" is a bit of a misnomer. A resume is a CV. They are two different expressions for the same thing.


    CV stands for "Curriculum Vitae" which is Latin for "course of life"


    The information in a Curriculum Vitae (CV) is more detailed and varied than the information in a resume. The primary differences between a CV and a resume are the length, what type of information is included, and what the CV or resume is used for.
    A resume is a brief and concise one or two page summary of your skills, experience, and education. A CV is usually longer (at least two pages) and more detailed than a resume. A CV 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 CV with any application. In the United States and Canada, a CV is primarily used when applying for academic, education, scientific or research positions, and also for fellowships or grants. The United States CV model is also more comprehensive than the CV model used by the United Kingdom (UK) and the European Union (EU).
    In the UK, a CV is short (usually a maximum of 2 sides of A4 paper). It contains only a summary of the job seeker's employment history, qualifications, and some personal information. The information is not much different than the information found in a resume but the CV is still more detailed.
    In the EU, the European Parliament and European Commission are promoting a standardized CV model they developed in 2004 known as "Europass". This standardized CV system is meant to streamline skilled migration between countries, in part by overcoming language differences, and to be just as helpful to employers and education providers as it is to job seekers and students.
