A resume is a 1-3 page document that showcases how you add value to employers through your skills and achievements. A resume is used when applying for most types of jobs within the U.S. If you are applying for positions outside the U.S., visit GoinGlobal to learn if a resume, or another document, is required.
An academic c.v. is a description of your education, experience, and accomplishments. It places more emphasis on your academic work, professional development activities, and contributions to your field. A c.v. is a longer document than a resume, up to 5-8 pages depending on your level of experience and professional accomplishments such as presentations and publications. You may be asked to submit a c.v. when applying for:
- Higher education teaching and leadership positions
- Research positions
- Conference proposals
- Consulting work
