Difference between Resume and CV

Some of us may still confuse the difference between Resume and CV. Hence we would like to summarize it as below:-


Resume is a short letter which includes basic details of an individual.

1 Page document

No particular format rule and can be customizable.

It is used to seek jobs highlighting relevant skills

A resume includes detailed information about:-

  • Experience
  • Education
  • Contact details

A cover letter is required to highlight skills and expertise which are not relatively mentioned in the resume.



CV stands for Curriculum Vitae which means “Course of Life”.

2-3 pages document.

Detailed and covers your entire career.

Used to seek jobs highlighting academic background

A CV consist of:-

  • Career Objective
  • Area of expertise
  • Academic & technical background
  • Professional experience
  • Achievements
  • Contact details

A CV is mostly used without a cover letter.
