Curriculum Vitae (CV)

A Curriculum Vitae is a detailed and comprehensive description of your academic credentials and achievements. A CV differs from a resume in that it includes extensive information on your academic background, including detailed descriptions of your academic experiences, degrees, any type of research, awards, publications, presentations, conferences, and other achievements. CVs are thus lengthier than resumes, and include more information, particularly details related to one’s academic and research background.
