What is a curriculum vitae or CV?

Category: Jobs


A curriculum vitae or CV is the overseas equivalent to a job resume. It provides an overview of a person’s life, education, qualifications, experience, awards, and other personal details as opposed to skill sets and job history like you’d see in a standard resume. The curriculum vitae is essentially a more detailed and personal type of resume that is often used abroad. It is also used in the US when an individual applies for academic and/or research positions, fellowships, or grants.
