Curriculum Vitae (CV)
Curriculum Vitaes (also known as CVs), are lengthier than a resume. Often used in academia, these detail all academic experience you have, while a resume summarizes your skills and experience. Use our CV Guide to help yours shine!
Instead of having references on your resume, use a separate document. Our Reference Writing Guide will help you get started.
